Our Playgroup is a bespoke learning experience that includes many exceptional features. Each class is led by an English language teacher and supported by HKA's specialist teachers. The Playgroup classroom opens out directly onto our phenomenal outdoor playscapes and organic gardens. As part of the HKA community, Playgroup participants are invited to a variety of community events and parent education opportunities as well as having access to our outstanding library. Participants can also guarantee an invitation for assessment for the following school year.

How do I register my child?
Click here to register your child and select your preferred session. Enrolment is on a rolling basis. Programmes begin on either Monday or Tuesday, payment is per session, billed monthly and allocated as a non-refundable deposit for future HKA enrolment (Pre-K & K only). If your preferred session is full, we will be happy to include you in the waiting pool for that session. In the meantime, you are welcome to attend a different session where space is available.
Can my child continue with the Playgroup after the free taster session or join immediately?
Families can sign up to join the Playgroup and secure their space either before or after the free taster session. Based on your child’s engagement and participation in Playgroup, the assessment procedures may be waived and a Pre-K space secured for the following school year.
