Our Playgroup is a bespoke learning experience that includes many exceptional features. Each class is led by an English language teacher and co-taught by a native Mandarin speaker. The Playgroup classroom opens out directly onto our phenomenal outdoor playscapes, and as part of the HKA community Playgroup participants are invited to a variety of community events and parent education opportunities as well as have access to our outstanding library and specialist teachers. Participants can also guarantee an invitation for assessment for the following school year. If the deposit is paid for the following school year, not only are you eligible for the HKA assessment, you are also guaranteed a Playgroup place for the ENTIRE year - FREE!

To enrol, click here and select your preferred session. Enrolment is on a rolling basis. Programmes begin on either Monday or Tuesday. If your preferred session is full, we will be happy to include you in the waiting pool for that session. In the meantime, you are welcome to attend a different session where space is available.
The first six weeks are free! After the free taster period, participants will have the opportunity to extend Playgroup participation for the whole year upon deposit for enrolment at HKA for the following school year.
Families can sign up to join the Playgroup and secure the space for the entire year by paying the non-refundable deposit upon entry. Or enjoy the Free Six Week Taster where, at the end of week 4, parents will be asked to either make a deposit for future enrolment at HKA or informs the school that the child will not be returning after their free 6 week taster period concludes. Based on your child's engagement and participation in Playgroup the assessment procedures may be waived and a Pre-K space secured for the following school year.
