Our curriculum is play based and is designed to increase toddlers levels of social competence and to problem solve in a caring way. At HKPPA we celebrate childhood and believe the most important job of a toddler is to play ... to play hard, to play long, and to play with others. We believe that kids need to use their imagination, they need to splash bubbles about, they need to mess paint around, they need to crash cars. They also need to find out about each other, and they need a place where they feel they belong. Through creative play, exposure to music, art and new experiences they quickly learn about their environment and how to interact with other children and adults. Our playgroup emphasises unstructured play -- giving children the room they need to engage in activities that interest and stimulate them and learn at their own pace. Our teachers and parents help guide them as they explore and learn.
City Kids HKPPA Playgroup (Formerly Borrett Road Playgroup)
City Kids Playgroup has a long, rich history in the Mid-Levels community and is highly respected for its nurturing of children and families. Many of us arrived in Hong Kong without knowing a soul and found within HKPPA a place we belonged. Others of us, who are from Hong Kong, find City Kids after they have children and are looking for friendship and fellowship, or an English-speaking environment. What we all have in common is an understanding of the richness and importance of childhood and the crucial role parenting plays in child development.
City Kids offers AM and PM playgroup sessions. Children are eligible to attend HKPPA from 10 months until 3 years. All children need to be accompanied by a parent or helper. We are located in the school building on Borrett Road in Mid-Levels, across from Island School.
