  • Successful applicants:

Parents should complete the registration procedures for their child from 10 to 12 January 2018 (“Centralised Registration Dates”) by submitting the original of the “2019/20 RC” to the kindergarten and paying the registration fee.


  • Applicants on the waiting list:

If the successful applicant fails to register during the “Centralised Registration Dates”, the school may allocate the unfilled places to applicants on the waiting list.

Parents should complete the registration procedures for their child according to the specified date set by the school. Parents are required to submit the original of the “2019/20 RC” to the kindergarten and pay the registration fee.


  • Please be reminded that if parents cannot submit the “2019/20 RC” during registration, the kindergarten may not be able to complete registration for their child. Hence, parents are required to submit application for the Registration Certificate to EDB within the specified period.


  • The registration fee for 2019/20 K1 place half day class is HKD$970 and the whole day class is HKD $1,570. If parents decide to change school after registration, please notify the kindergarten in writing. The kindergarten will return the “2019/20 RC” but the registration fee will not be refunded. Upon obtaining the “2019/20 RC”, the kindergarten will no longer keep the school place for the child.


*As the kindergarten will join the free quality kindergarten education (2019/20), the school fee of half day class will be free of charge, while the amount of school fee for whole day class will be announced by the EDB.

 In order to provide more support, the school will provide English interpretation services for students in need.
