More than three-quarters of all kindergartens have joined the voucher scheme, it was revealed this week. A further 90 of the close to 1,000 kindergartens and childcare centres across the city whose profiles were published on the internet on Monday have joined the scheme under transitional arrangements. The profiles - published on the Committee on Home-School Co-operation's website hkedcity.net - include information on school fees, curriculum, qualifications of teaching staff, class sizes and student numbers. They also include the results of any quality review, if the school has been inspected. The voucher scheme, which was launched last year, entitles parents to an HK$11,000 coupon which can be used at non-profit kindergartens charging no more than HK$24,000 a year for half-day classes or HK$48,000 for whole-day schooling. Certain profit-making kindergartens have been allowed to join the scheme provisionally for a three-year transitional period. The profiles also reveal considerable regional variation in the take-up of the voucher scheme. In Wong Tai Sin, all 48 kindergartens have become full participants in the scheme. Southern District is the only one where kindergartens joining the voucher scheme are outnumbered by those not joining it - there are 20 schools on the scheme, including one with transitional status but 21 which will not accept the vouchers.
