For 2017 – 2018 Kindergarten Admission,
First Round application deadline: 15th October 2016
Admission Information 2017 – 2018
Anfield International Kindergarten provides education for boys and girls from the age of 2 years 8 months. The curriculum is based on the U.K Early Years Foundation Stage and the medium of instruction is English.
The majority of children enter in K1 and complete a two year programme at Anfield International Kindergarten (i.e. K1 and K2) before moving on to an International Primary School. Children who enrol for two years of kindergarten enjoy all the benefits of the programme. Many parents will choose the full day option for their child in K2 as a good preparation for entry into primary school.
After K2, students may move on to an International Primary School for example Anfield School or ESF or continue to study at Anfield in K3 (an option for students who will later go to local schools in P1 or international schools starting later in the year.)

Places in K2 and K3 classes are limited, but may become available during the academic year. If no place is immediately available your child’s application will be added to our waiting list.
- 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.

* The Anfield International Kindergarten application fee is HK$800. The fee is a non-refundable, non-transferable administration fee for each application. The collection of fee constitutes no assurance that a Kindergarten place will be offered. Income from applications fees, as a whole is intended to cover the administrative cost for the whole admission process as well as the staff cost of the play session and/or children interview for admission assessment purposes. Children may be invited back to the School for a second visit if the School needs further information on the child. The School may involve the Special Educational Needs (SEN) teacher and/or Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) in this visit.
