Fairchild is an excellent preschool that we highly recommend. The staff and teachers are skilled, caring and kind. They are always flexible and understanding with the families. The learning environment is great and encourages children to discover new things and grow their confidence. Our children love going to Fairchild every morning and even miss school during holidays.
Both being primary school teachers, choosing a kindergarten was an extremely important decision for us to make as parents. We were looking for somewhere where children’s voices were truly valued, where our children had the ability to make their own decisions about what to explore; a place where the curriculum was truly child-centric and play-based.
We have been delighted to have both our children enrolled at Fairchild; seeing them finish each day full of enthusiasm and excitement about what they have been doing is a daily source of joy for us. Where many other kindergartens are keen to enforce a rigid structure of directions and expected outputs of young learners, it’s clear that our children’s curiosities and choices are fully supported at FJA. Having taught in an early-years classroom for a number of years, I couldn’t be happier to see my children engage in a genuine play-based, student-led environment each day. For these children, each day is rich in possibility, with limitless potential for discovery and wonder.
Aside from the curriculum, FJA carefully nurtures a classroom environment that encourages mutual respect amongst peers and teachers, as well as celebrating cultural differences. Our children enjoy a vibrant, engaging mixture of culture and languages that stimulate their curiosity and understanding of the world around them.
We have been delighted to find this wonderful Kindergarten, and as such we have continued to refer many friends to join FJA.
女兒與兒子性格不同，學習傾向更是迴異 - 女兒享受獨自嘗試和探索，兒子卻喜愛有人陪伴、一同學習。他們一同在FJA 成長，經歷卻各有不同。在同一個校舍，女兒從不會被要求順應群體，而兒子總會有伴。要說他們在FJA的共同經歷，大概就是這種可以按自己興趣學習的珍貴的自由吧！
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...
