Service Objectives


There are three kindergartens under the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (“HKFYG”), namely, Ching Lok Kindergarten in Sai Wan Ho and Yau Ma Tei, and KK Cheng Kindergarten in Ngau Tau Kok. We provide early childhood education and care services for children aged 2-6.

 

Our Kindergarten focuses on the developmental needs of children and the quality of learning and teaching.  We aim to stimulate students’ motivation through a variety of curriculum designs, including picture book teaching, art classes and free play, so that students can learn to think, explore, experiment and discover in an encouraging environment. Under the careful guidance of our teachers, we hope that our children will enjoy learning through a diverse and enriching learning mode and develop a spirit of self-learning, self-confidence and self-discipline (the “Three Self’s Spirit”).

 

Service Hours


Monday to Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (closed on Sundays, school holidays and public holidays)

 

Curriculum Features


The emphasis is on the learning process and the development of an active learning attitude in the children. Our Kindergarten focuses on theme-based teaching, design activities and picture book teaching. Children learn through thinking, observing, exploring, collecting information, sharing, reporting and discussing. In addition to individual themes, elements of science and art are also included to provide children with a variety of learning opportunities. Children’s interest in reading and language learning is actively nurtured through a variety of learning activities. Our Kindergarten also emphasises home-school collaboration and encourages parental involvement to provide a positive learning and healthy environment for our children.
