  • It’s the only school in Hong Kong to offer a world-leading Forest-Beach School
  • There’s a focus on innovative mindset and critical thinking while a play-based approach is followed at the Early Years stage

Teaching approach

  • The 7 areas the playgroup focuses on are Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language; Physical Development, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts & Design; Math and Literacy
  • The playgroup is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, which views the student-teacher relationship as a partnership and teachers as nurturers. This approach is followed from playgroup to pre-school
