ESF Tung Chung International Kindergarten took possession of its new space in the Visionary in Tung Chung on March 1 – this will be the biggest of ESF’s five Hong Kong kindergartens when it opens in August.
Now taking enrolments for K1, K2 and playgroup, the kindergarten has been custom-designed to best accommodate the three- to five-year-old children in its care.
According to the kindergarten’s principal, Sandra Hite, the location for the new facility was a no-brainer. “Anyone that looks at the plans for Tung Chung knows it’s going to be growing exponentially,” she says. “Obviously in a city that’s growing, it’s really important to ensure that the youngest children have some choice in where they go to school.”
ESF has been running monthly admission sessions to keep up with a high demand but is keen to let people know that there are still places left for this year and that the opening presents a rare opportunity. “It’s unusual for us to have any seats at all at this time of year,” Sandra says. “ESF kindergartens are such high-quality kindergartens and I think the Hong Kong community knows that reputation. Because of that we are always oversubscribed and our wait lists are quite long.”
To celebrate the impending opening, the kindergarten held a family day at its closest feeder school, Discovery College, Discovery Bay, on February 21 for those already enrolled.
