[Sponsored article] Mount Kelly School Hong Kong (MKSHK) (香港凱莉山學校) has strengthened its “Seamless Transition” in Education for Hong Kong children and families with the hugely successful opening of Playgroup classes at its Admission and Playgroup Centre, Austin Tower, TST.

“Current demand from educationally informed Parents for their children to attend the playgroups has been overwhelming. Our Head of Pre-Prep (Kindergarten Principal) joins the team this May and we will expand our offering further. I am so pleased that we can now offer a Mount Kelly experience to children from 6 months to pre-University. An exciting development for our team and the families in Hong Kong.” Mr. Peter Kenny (Director and Governor)

Mount Kelly children will be able to attend our specialised ‘Child Development’ Playgroups focused on holistic development milestones for children and then move into the Mount Kelly Pre-Prep (Kindergarten) with a priority in Admissions. The Mount Kelly Pre-Prep opens in a stunning brand new ‘state of the art’ Kindergarten site in TST this September. On graduation from Pre-Prep our pupils, again, have the priority in Admissions to Mount Kelly School, Preparatory. From Preparatory School our Year 8 Graduates have a guaranteed admission placement at Mount Kelly UK. This assured path from Early Childhood to our UK Sister School is a first in Hong Kong and arguably a world first.

Our new Playgroup ‘Child Development’ Classes commenced on 6 March 2017 for infants and toddlers aged 6 months to 36 months. Our Playgroup Centre together with our Admissions Office is located at Austin Tower, Tsim Sha Tsui. Our new Pre-Preparatory or Kindergarten school (Nursery and Reception) is located in a superb and convenient location in Tsim Sha Tsui and will open September 2017. Our Preparatory School (City Campus) will open at Hung Hom Bay. This brand new building is complete and will have the interior design and construction completed for our classes to begin by September 2017.

Mount Kelly School Hong Kong has established our innovative city campuses, to both fulfill our commitment to parents that MKSHK would open by September 2017 and to provide a unique choice to families of campuses across Hong Kong.

The Mount Kelly School Hong Kong City Campuses are permanent sites and will enhance and parallel our larger main campus at Tuen Mun site, which is targeted for completion in September 2018.

 

About Mount Kelly’s specialized "child development" playgroup

Your journey at Mount Kelly School Hong Kong begins with our playgroup experience.  At the Mount Kelly “Child Development” Playgroup Centre your children will thrive in a stimulating environment where children are encouraged to be active, engaged and immerse in a social environment that builds confidence whilst promoting healthy development and pure enjoyment. Our resident Pediatric Specialist in Occupational Therapy (OT) guides our programme to ensure that crucial child development ‘Milestones” are met and assessed as your child grows and learns.

OT can help children improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. A child's main job is playing and learning, and occupational therapists can evaluate children’s skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.

Our playgroup programs are designed to help children learn through and embrace their natural curiosity.  Our play centred programme offers each child the opportunity to develop their pre-numeracy sills and language skills by asking questions, predicting, imagining and wondering. 

Purposeful engagement with parents, Mount Kelly professionals and friends help your child to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. 

Mount Kelly, Hong Kong truly offers the very best in British World Class education and child development. We invite you to come and speak with our Admissions team or book in for a free trial Playgroup session.
