Welcome to Mulberry House International Kindergarten (MHKG)! We are excited to welcome you and your family into our beautiful and well purposed learning space and community. Our vision is to create a leading inquiry-based bilingual immersion education in Hong Kong, unlocking each child’s unique potential.
At Mulberry House International Kindergarten, we believe that early education lays a lasting foundation for every child’s lifelong learning journey. From birth to age five, a child’s brain develops more rapidly than any other time in life. In fact, a child’s brain grows to about 90% of an adult size brain by age five. From our experienced , to our passionate teachers, to our loving supporting staff, we are all fully committed to providing quality care and education so that your child develops physically, intellectually and emotionally during these early years. We provide the highest quality of education for each child through our nurturing learning spaces, passionate educators, and well-rounded curriculum.
With our bright and spacious learning spaces including classrooms, music room, sensory area, indoor playground, outdoor garden, and library, we have carefully curated a wide variety of natural learning materials so that your child can start a wonderful journey exploring the world.
In our well-designed learning spaces, we have carefully handpicked passionate and well qualified educators and supporting staff who love children and will guide each child to learn and master knowledge and problem–solving skills, both English and Chinese language in spoken and written formats, and social-emotional skills among a diverse group of children.
Embracing the globally recognised early years teaching framework EYFS, we have designed a rich and developmentally optimal curriculum that will ensure each child develops holistically in his or her critical years of learning and are fully prepared to enter a strong bilingual international or local primary school.
Starting from birth, your child’s brain connections are also formed through his or her everyday experiences with parents, caregivers and friends. We value your input, participation and partnership to ensure your child receives the best overall learning experience in the early years. We have already planned for many parent events, and we welcome you to join us and become an integral part of your child’s learning journey.
I am grateful and take pride in working alongside our group of wonderful look forward to partnering with parents like you to kick off your child’s most memorable learning journey together.
