At Fairchild, the development of the whole child in a play-focused environment is central to everything we do. Our teaching and learning are based on the Kindergarten Program from Ontario, Canada, as well as meeting the expectations of the Hong Kong Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide. Our educators base their methods on the Reggio Emilia approach to facilitating learning.
Play-based LearningFairchild is one of Hong Kong’s pioneers of the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, awarded ‘Top 10 Most Valuable Peschool’ in Hong Kong. Our educators encourage children to follow their own interests through sensory play, creative arts, music and movement, exploring nature and many other hands-on learning activities.
Engaging Campus LifeFairchild has built an engaging yet welcoming campus that encourages children to play, inquire and learn in a 8,000 sq.ft. of learning space. We introduce many natural elements into our classroom, not only sand, water and plants, but also worms, butterflies, turtles and geckos! By bringing the outdoors in, Fairchild creates a ‘perfect place’, defined by our students, where they come to school every day with a big smile.
Multicultural Learning EnvironmentFairchild is a happy multicultural community where children and families from around the globe
gather and grow up together. We offer classes in English and Mandarin taught by native teachers, providing a truly immersive environment that benefits children’s language development.
“...my children get to mingle with kids from at least 5 or 6 different nationalities just in their classes alone. You almost forget you are in HK. My kid is excited to go to school every day.” – Johnny’s parent
Close Parent-Teacher CommunicationFairchild works hand in hand with families to ensure a happy, healthy and all-rounded development of each child. We use an online platform to share with parents what children have learned at school on a weekly basis. Parents are encouraged to create wonderful memories alongside their children’s learning journey, for example, accompanying them on school trips, sharing their country’s unique cultures and celebrating children’s birthdays in class.
Primary PlacementFairchild paves a path to both elite international schools and local schools, as well as schools overseas. The majority of Fairchild graduates head on to renowned international schools in Hong Kong such as ESF schools, HKIS, FIS, CDNIS and more.
