Purpose of Sunshine House Playgroup
What will the children do in Playgroup?
Basic Playgroup (12 - 20 months)
Advanced Playgroup (21 – 30 months)
We offer Bilingual classes (English and Putonghua) for our Nursery and Kindergarten programs for 2 – 6 year olds. Putonghua is integrated into the curriculum on the daily basis.
We follow the British National curriculum and The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Sunshine House with more emphasis on creativity and specifically tailored for children’s multi-cultural experience living in Hong Kong.
Our early literature program is delivered through the Oxford Reading Tree and the Jolly Phonics programs. Additionally, we place a great deal of emphasis on preparing our children for their Primary One admissions, teaching them our “Sunshine Values”, helping them with self-esteem and confidence, and moulding them into the Global Citizens they will become.
Upon completion of their pre-school years, our children progress to international schools or local schools; we have an excellent track record of children moving on to primary schools of their choice.
Through play, children:
- explore their world through sensory play
- find out how to get along with others
- become competent enough to try different activities
- develop self esteem
- persistence and concentration
- the value of curiosity
- attitudes and values
- self motivation and self-direction

In addition to the essential learning skills for reading, literacy, numeracy, art and design, English, History, Music, Geography, Physical education, Environemntal Studies and Putonghua, our K2 and K3 children serve as role models and buddies for the younger children in the school. This encourages them to take greater personal and moral responsibilities and gives them the skills that will set them up for life.
