(H) Application for the “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission”

  1. Under the kindergarten education scheme (Scheme), each child who can receive education in Hong Kong will only be issued a registration document and all Scheme-KGs can only admit students holding a valid registration document.
  1. Parents are required to submit an application for the “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission” (hereafter referred to as “RC”) to EDB from September to November 2023. The “RC” will be open for applications in September 2023 and EDB will announce and upload the details of application onto EDB’s website (https://www.edb.gov.hk/k1-admission_e) in due course. Upon receipt of the applications with all necessary information and documents provided, EDB will generally take six to eight weeks to complete processing of 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” as he/she can receive education in Hong Kong but is not eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme 1, 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 but the parents concerned 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.

(I) Registration Arrangements

  1. Successful applicants: Parents should complete the registration procedures for their child from 4th to 6th January 2024 (“Centralised Registration Dates”) by submitting the “RC” / “AP” to the school and paying the registration fee.
  2. Unsuccessful applicants: Your child will be placed on our waiting list automatically. Parents will be informed by phone if there is a vacancy. If parents accept our offer, please register at our school in person by submitting the “RC” / “AP” and paying the registration fee.
  3. Please be reminded that if parents cannot submit the “RC” / “AP” during registration, the school may not be able to complete registration for their child. Hence, parents are required to submit application for the registration document to EDB within the specified period.
  4. The registration fee for 2024/25 K1 place is HK$970. If the child concerned studies in the school, the registration fee paid will be refunded in September. Should parents decide to change school after registration, please notify the school in writing. The school will return the “RC” / “AP” as soon as possible but the registration fee will not be refunded. Upon obtaining the “RC” / “AP”, the school will no longer keep the school place for the child.
