ABC Curriculum


U.K. National Curriculum (EYFS)

Our kindergarten curriculum is designed to provide the young learners of Hong Kong with the right tools needed to prepare and guide them on their journey into formal education. Based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework as used in the British National Curriculum, our kindergarten programme sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from Pre-Nursery to K3 students. The EYFS supports an integrated approach to learning and care, giving parents confidence that they can be assured meets the very highest standard of commitment and principles that will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.

Through being immersed in engaging learning exercises and activities, children will develop a sense of satisfaction and personal achievement from the outset. Our tireless goal is to make every child aWINNER in education, by incorporating positive reinforcement with challenging and active tasks for a rewarding and joyful learning adventure. Each one of our learners is given a chance to succeed and every individual (staff, teacher and students alike) are treated with kindness and respect.

We strongly believe that putting young learners under unnecessary pressure in the classroom can be detrimental to their confidence, self-esteem and overall learning. With this is mind, all staff within ABC kindergartens are trained to focus on maintaining a motivating and rewarding learning environment. However, we do also believe in giving students challenging content that promotes an inquisitive and rewarding learning experience.

Our curriculum offerstotal language immersion in English in the following 5 specific areas of learning:

  • English (Language and Literacy)
  • Mathematics
  • Science (Understanding the World)
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Play and Physical Exploration

With emphasis on the prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development

With a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach, students are provided with the opportunity to use their new language skills now, rather than learning them now for use later, nurturing confidence and opening doors on language to a broader range of young learners.

  • Creating and thinking critically
  • Playing and exploration
  • Adhering to a clear set of requirements to keep children safe
