Nursery

For 2018 – 2019  Nursery Admission,

First  Round  application  deadline:  31st  October  2017

Anfield International Nursery provides education for boys and girls from the age of 2 years. The curriculum is based on the U.K Early Years Foundation Stage and the medium of instruction is English.


Joint Admission to Nursery and Kindergarten 1 (2018 – 2019)

Anfield International Nursery and Anfield International Kindergarten are considered as a “Through Train School“, under the Anfield British educational umbrella, sharing the same mission and vision and following the same philosophy and teaching methodology. We believe parents choose Anfield Nursery as their child’s first step for his/her educational path, intending to continue into our Kindergarten1 in the following academic year. Children certainly benefit from such continuity within Anfield‘s high quality education system from ages 2 to 5.

All Anfield Nursery applications are directly linked therefore with the Kindergarten application. This means that the Nursery offer is ONLY given to those parents whom we believe are intending to send their children to both Anfield Nursery and Kindergarten.  The Kindergarten Admission Fee of HK$800 is consequently for a Joint Admission Application to both Nursery and Kindergarten 1 (One Application covering both Nursery and Kindergarten 1).

  • If the School is oversubscribed, the following considerations will be taken into account:
  • –Parent of children is a full-time employee of Anfield
  • –Children who are native English speakers
  • –Siblings of children already attending Anfield School and/or Anfield International Kindergarten and/or Anfield International Kindergarten and Nursery
  • –Children who are attending an Anfield mid-week Playgroup
  • –Date of receipt of a completed application
  • Occasionally, a child may have fallen behind in his/her education due to illness etc. In such a case, the School may offer a place in a year lower than the child’s age would normally imply. Parents or guardians will be consulted before such an offer is made, but the decision as to the appropriate year for the child, taking into account all the relevant circumstances, is a matter for the Principal, whose decision is final.
  • In accordance with regulations as stipulated by the Education Bureau and Immigration Department all pupils joining Anfield International Nursery/ Anfield International Kindergarten must be in possession of a valid Hong Kong ID card, allowing unconditional stay, or must have a valid passport with authorized residency status to be eligible for a place at Anfield International Nursery/ Anfield International Kindergarten. A visitor visa does not entitle the holder to attend any school in Hong Kong.

If your child secures a place in Nursery in September you will be asked to attend a compulsory introductory meeting for parents in the term before your child is due to start Nursery.  We will also arrange an opportunity for your child to visit the school and meet the teachers, prior to their actual start date. Children must also then be accompanied in Nursery during the important settling period.
