Playgroup 12 - 30 months PLAYGROUP (adult accompanied)

Play is a vital part of a child's life. It is the way children make sense of their world. Therefore, play is essential if children are to learn.

Purpose of Sunshine House PLAYGROUP

What will the children do in PLAYGROUP?

There are lots of activities such as arts & crafts, singing, dancing, story time, outdoor playtime, English and Putonghua planned as part of their curriculum.

Basic Playgroup (12 - 20 months)

2 Days/Week Programme : 9:00 am - 10:30 am or 10:30 am - 12noon (Tuesday and Thursday)

Advanced Playgroup (21 – 30 months)

3 Days/Week Programme : 9:00 am - 10:30 am (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)


We offer Bilingual classes (English and Putonghua) for our Nursery and Kindergarten programs for 2 – 6 year olds. The daily Putonghua session lasts around 40minutes; the focus remains on the Literacy and Numeracy programs which are delivered in English.

We follow the British National curriculum and The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Sunshine House with more emphasis on creativity and specifically tailored for children’s multi-cultural experience living in Hong Kong.

Our early literature program is delivered through the Oxford Reading Tree and the Jolly Phonics programs. Additionally, we place a great deal of emphasis on preparing our children for their Primary One admissions, teaching them our “Sunshine Values”, helping them with self-esteem and confidence, and moulding them into the Global Citizens they will become.

Upon completion of their pre-school years, our children progress to international schools or ESF primary schools; we have an excellent track record of children moving on to primary schools of their choice.
