Support Plan for Non-Chinese Speaking Children and Families

        With the revision of the “Free Quality Kindergarten Education Scheme”, our Kindergarten serves not only children of Chinese descent, but also children of different ethnic groups. Therefore, our Kindergarten has provided support services for non-Chinese speaking children and families since 2019.

       This is to enable children to “understand each other’s culture and living habits, and to cultivate values and attitudes that accept and respect others from an early age. This is especially useful for non-Chinese speaking children and families to adapt to the local school system and integrate into the society as soon as possible.

 

       To provide a happy and healthy school life for children, and to jointly cultivate the growth of the children with parents, our Kindergarten arranges activities tailor-made for non-Chinese speaking children, more diversified activities and support services for non-Chinese speaking children and parents..
