Why Victoria

Why Victoria

Victoria offers the highest quality education; from its playgroup catering to children aged 8-36 months, to its eight nurseries and kindergartens situated throughout Hong Kong.

The schools share a common vision and curriculum, with each campus celebrating its own style and individual qualities.

At the heart of the Victoria is the desire to be at the forefront of top quality educational provision whilst nurturing happy, joyful, enthusiastic learners.

Our multilingual classes adopt the one-teacher-one-language co-teaching approach, where teachers work as a team to provide a total immersion language environment for children. Classes are bilingual or trilingual and taught by native speaking English, Putonghua and/or Cantonese teachers who are experts in early childhood development. Our low average student to teacher ratio of 1:8 ensures that our nurturing teachers can work closely with children to facilitate many aspects of their development.

We take pride in our commitment to offering programs that draw on world class research and best practice. All Victoria kindergartens are authorised International Baccalaureate World Schools, and offer the International Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Columbia University Teachers College Reading and  Writing Program (TCRWP) in both English and Chinese. The PYP curriculum is a student-centered inquiry based program focusing on the ‘taught’ and the ‘learned’ curriculum, two essential elements in a child’s all embracing education.

Along with our fun based, inquiry driven, yet rigorous curriculum, Victoria kindergartens prepare their thousands of students to move on to all types of primary education. The students leave us able to speak in more than one language, to read and write, to state their opinions, to present to an audience, and to ask questions. In fact, one proud moment was when the principal of a local school announced; “Oh, we always know the Victoria children, they ask so many questions!” 

Whatever choice a parent makes, the Victoria Kindergarten student has the grounding and foundations to become a successful, well-rounded primary school student.

In line with the Victoria belief in the value of “family”, and the importance of including everyone within the school community, there is much emphasis placed on the Parent/School Partnership. This is integral to the success of Victoria. Parents are invited through the ‘Parental Participation Scheme” to be actively involved in supporting what is happening in school. This could be by assisting in the classroom, reading to students, participating at Parent Child Sports Day, organising activities or accompanying on field trips to name a few. 

A more formal approach to our partnership is supported by our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Victoria was one of the first kindergartens to form this type of organisation in 1996. 

Victoria understands that we are part of a larger community, so each year the children will share their talents and perform in various public venues around Hong Kong for the enjoyment of the public. Students and parents are often seen helping to support charities by collecting on flag raising days.  Giving back and supporting others is a strong facet of Victoria.
