Parents are required to submit the “RC”/ “AP” to the KG and pay the registration fee.
  • Please be reminded that if parents cannot submit the “RC”/ “AP” during the registration period, the school may not be able to complete the registration for the child. Hence, parents are required to submit an application for the appropriate registration documents to the EDB within the specified period.
  • The registration fee for a K1 place in the 2024/25 school year is HK$1,000. If the child concerned decides to study at the school, the registration fee will be refunded.

  • Under the kindergarten (KG) education scheme (hereafter referred to as “Scheme”), each child who can receive education in Hong Kong will only be issued one registration document. All Scheme-KGs can only admit students holding a valid registration document.
  • Parents are required to submit an application for the “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission” (hereafter referred to as “RC”) to the EDB from September to November 2023. The “RC” will  be open for applications in September 2023 and the EDB will announce and upload the details of application onto the EDB’s website (http://www.edb.gov.hk/k1-admission_e) in due course.
  • Upon receipt of the applications with all necessary information and documents provided, the EDB will generally take six to eight weeks to process the applications and issue the “RC” to applicants who are eligible for receiving subsidy under the “Scheme” by post. If a student cannot obtain an “RC”, meaning that he/she can receive education in Hong Kong but is not eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme[1], the EDB will then issue a “Kindergarten Admission Pass” (hereafter referred to as “AP”) to the student concerned for registration and admission to a Scheme-KG. Parents of the concerned student are required to pay full school fees before deduction of subsidy under the “Scheme” as shown on the Fees Certificate of the KG to which the child is admitted.

 

[1]Upon obtaining permission from the Director of Immigration, non-local children (such as children holding a form of recognizance, children whose parent(s) is/are holding a student visa, etc.) can receive education in Hong Kong but they are not eligible for subsidy under the Scheme.
