TWGHs Social Welfare Services
The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals is the oldest and largest charitable organization in Hong Kong, providing a wide range of services including health, education and social welfare, distributed around Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories. The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals have developed early childhood services since 1968. It has 15 kindergartens for registered non-profit-making kindergartens and child care centres. It provides long whole day care and education services for children under the age of six as well as the integrated programme. The curriculum focuses on the child's needs according to their age of development, cultural and individual characteristics to build their strong foundation, a healthy body and mind in a pleasant environment, with a good learning attitude and daily habits
Our nursery school is under the governance of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. The school commenced operation in 1979 to provide care and educational services for young children in Upper Sau Mau Ping. It was then relocated to the current address in August 1994 upon the redevelopment of the public housing estate. To align with the implementation of Harmonization of Pre-primary Services, the school was registered under Education and Manpower Bureau (currently Education Bureau) as Kindergarten-cum-Child Care Centre in September 2005. It joined the “Kindergarten Education Scheme” implemented by the Education Bureau in September 2017; and received additional fundings from the Social Welfare Department to enhance the childcare services in September 2019.
