We learnt about Fairchild at an International Kindergarten Fair, being impressed by Principal Yau’s heartfelt passion in early-childhood development and her charismatic leadership in ensuring delivery of the School’s philosophy via her team, and our girl Ally has been with Fairchild since accompanied playgroup in September 2019. Now Ally is in Fairchild’s K1 Dual (Bilingual) class.
We have seen Ally grow in all aspects: from a shy girl to a sociable one where she greets her peers and has fun playing with them in class; from a timid toddler to a brave one where she explores different ways of playing around the school’s treehouse and climbing facilities; from a rather self-centered child to a compassionate one that is keen to help others.
Being flexible and accommodating, the Team has contributed tremendously to nurturing Ally’s growth by facilitating her development in social etiquette and enhancing her expressions and communication skills; providing constant constructive feedback on delicate observations of her achievements and improvements...encouraging creativity and trial-and-error in exploring new things for building her self-confidence and curiosity...
Fairchild Kindergarten is like that warm, welcoming, personal neighborhood nursery that one is used to in North America, except that it attracts parents from such a diverse mix range of backgrounds that 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... Each staff, from the administrative to supportive, knows your children's names and particular interests, the principal stands at the door and greets all the children everyday, knowing exactly how well your child has progressed. Most importantly, no matter how rowdy or active or quiet my children are, the teachers can find a way to bond with them and my kids are excited to go to school everyday. They come home saying they just played all day but the knowledge they have gained pops out in multiple ways. The strong social skills and emotional regulation fostered in this nurturing environment in seconds to none in HK.
The parent community is just as welcoming and diverse and I have made many great friends at FC myself! I highly recommend FC to anyone who wishes their child to become confident young learners, engaged and curious to explore this world, no matter what language or background the family.
We are so fortunate to have found Fairchild! Every single teacher and staff person has been amazing. We started a year ago and since then, he has grown in so many ways, thanks to Fairchild.
The teachers and staff have always wanted the best for Finn and all of the children. He has felt welcomed and cared for since day one, and though he was scared at first, he now loves going to school. We are so fortunate to have found a place where Finn feels that he belongs, where he can make friends, and where his education is supported in a creative and natural way.
We started going to Fairchild since Kaius’ age of 6months and he always loved to go to school, he had so many lovely friends (Sohan, Elliot, Kyra, Mila, Kaden.. Kaius says they are his ‘best friends ever’), and he became so sociable, active, confident, especially his language skills was highly developed. We were so lucky that Kaius got his early education from Fairchild.
I would like to express my sincere thanks from the bottom of my heart for helping him grow with love and care. Thank you Fairchild for caring for my child each and every day. I’ll never forget the difference you've made in his life. I’m deeply grateful to have all the teachers contributing to our child's growth and emotional well-being. Thank you again for making us feel comfortable being away from our child while at work and for caring for him beyond my expectations while we are away.
