City Kids was established in 1984 and is an active learning community that reflects the diversity of Hong Kong. We believe in establishing strong partnerships with our families as we prepare our students for their elementary years and beyond. Our educational philosophy is based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) and incorporates 7 key areas of learning. Personal, Social and Emotional, Physical, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Art and Design and Knowledge of the World.
Through play children feel confident in many ways, experiment with their physical, emotional and cognitive selves and develop their imagination and creativity. This curriculum guides adults to understand and support each child's development pathway. With progression to the older preschool class, the curriculum becomes more structured, preparing children for entry into primary school. The children's interests and natural curiosity are starting points and the children become more in charge of their learning, using trial and error to work things out. This helps them develop characteristics of a learner such as resilience, autonomy, cooperation and creative thinking.
Throughout their journey at City Kids, our children are encouraged to explore at their own pace, to make choices and discoveries and to develop a lifelong love for learning. We value the precious time of childhood and believe that children who have the opportunity to develop strong self-concepts and social and emotional skills are most successful both school and later in life. Teachers, children and parents all play important roles in the educational process.
Our children leave us as confident achievers, well-prepared to tackle the next steps in their education.
