Application for the Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission:

  1. From 2017-18, the Education Bureau has implemented the “Free Quality Kindergarten Education Scheme” (hereafter referred to as “Scheme”). Each child who is eligible to study in Hong Kong will be issued a registration document. Kindergartens under the “Scheme” can only admit child/children holding a valid registration document.
  2. Parents are required to apply to EDB for a “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission” (hereafter referred as “RC”) for their child(ren) from September to November 2021. Applications for “RC” will start in September of this year. Please access this link https://eform.one.gov.hk/form/edb005/en/ to register “RC”.
  3. Upon receipt of the application with all necessary information and documents provided, EDB will generally take six to eight weeks to complete processing of the application and issue the RC to applicants who are eligible for receiving subsidy under the “Scheme” by post. If a child cannot obtain an RC as he/she can receive education in Hong Kong but is not eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme, EDB will then issue an AP to the child concerned for registration and admission to a Scheme-KG but the parents concerned are required to pay full school fees before deduction of subsidy under the “Scheme” as shown on the Fees Certificate of the KG to which the child is admitted.¹ Upon obtaining permission from the Director of Immigration, non-local children (such as children holding a form of recognizance, children whose parent(s) is/are holding a student visa, etc.) can receive education in Hong Kong but they are not eligible for subsidy under the Scheme.
  4. Admission Arrangements for Nursery (K1) Classes in Kindergartens for the 2022/23 School Year. Please access this link https://www.edb.gov.hk/en/edu-system/preprimary-kindergarten/kindergarten-k1-admission-arrangements/index-2.html

 

Registration Arrangements:

  1. Successful applicants: Parents should complete the registration procedures for their child from January 6th - 8th, 2022 (“Centralised Registration Dates”) by submitting the original of the “RC”/ “AP” to our kindergarten and paying the registration fee.
  2. Applicants on the waiting list: Notified via email, 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 “RC” / “AP” to our kindergarten and pay the registration fee.
  3. Please be reminded that if parents cannot submit the “RC” / “AP” during registration, our kindergarten may not be able to complete registration for their child. Hence, parents must submit application for the “RC” or other valid registration documents to the EDB within the specified period.
  4. The registration fee for 2022-23 K1 place is HKD $970. Should parents decide to enroll their child/children to our kindergarten, registration fee will be refunded in September. Please notify us in writing, should parents decide to change school after registration. Please note that our school will return the “RC” / “AP” but the registration fee will not be refunded. Upon obtaining the “RC” / “AP”, we will no longer keep the school place for your child/children.
