Mission & Objectives
Wellcome International Kindergarten and Wellcome International Nursery were founded by Dr. Joky Ng in 2012 as a trilingual and biliterate international school engaging in high quality early childhood education which, we believe, is very important in today’s world. We always put every effort in providing our children with a well-structured curriculum to promote their learning in a well-equipped, well-resourced and well-staffed environment.
We believe that children’s growth and learning are of extreme importance, so we empower our children to achieve academic attainments as well as to build up a solid foundation in their literacy and socio-cultural development.
Our professional team is dedicated to…
- providing a safe, caring and stimulating environment
- offering well-structured curriculum and activities
- promoting physical and emotional health
- respecting parents as our partners
We structure our curriculum carefully based on the local kindergarten curriculum guides issued by the Hong Kong Education Bureau, the Early Years Foundation Stage of the British Curriculum and the kidsDNA Education System Curriculum. We want to train our children to be open-minded and reflective learners who will be eager to discover the world with the essence of Chinese and Western cultures today and in the future.
Our curriculum is child-centered:
Taking into consideration the needs of children, play-based activities and tie-to-real-life activities are integrated across all subject areas.
Our curriculum adopts an immersion approach in language development:
Our children are encouraged to use different languages in communication: Cantonese, English and Putonghua. Our teachers, including native English speakers and native Putonghua speakers, work closely together and accompany our children to pick up the languages via structured lessons and activities conducted class-wide as well as in small groups.
Our curriculum is led by dedicated teachers:
English teachers/tutors are native English speakers, most of them are university graduates and have received professional training in early childhood education.
Putonghua teachers/tutors are native Putonghua speakers with solid academic background and qualifications, many of them are even talented in art, drama, music and dancing.
Local teachers are native Cantonese speakers, they are qualified teachers holding recognized certificates, diplomas and/or degrees with sound experience in early childhood education.
Our curriculum instills the habit of reading:
A Share-reading Programme is specially designed for the purpose of developing our children’s essential reading and literacy skills to nurture them to become young readers and then turn into life-long learners.
Our curriculum develops our children with good behavior:
“BabyDNA” makes use of scientific methods to provide children with a balanced development and the life-wide learning environment to promote children’s proficiency.
