Parkview International Pre-School, Kowloon, was founded in 2007. It is the third PIPS kindergarten in Hong Kong. The first branch was established in 1989, on Hong Kong Island.
From a small enrolment the school has grown to having over 300 children from 2-6 years, plus a playgroup of 144 children aged from 1-2 years.
2 language streams are offered and all classes are taught by an English teacher and a Chinese (Putonghua or Cantonese) teacher working together, teaching their languages through an authentic immersion model.
In March 2014, PIPS Kowloon became a candidate IB World School, teaching the PYP curriculum. In June 2016, PIPS became an authorized IB World School.
Parkview International Pre-School (Kowloon) is the youngest of our 3 kindergartens and was established in 2007. In March 2014 we were accepted as a candidate PYP school. In June 2016 we officially became an IB World School.
As an international kindergarten we have a diverse population of children and teachers from all over the world. We actively promote intercultural understanding and seek to develop international-mindedness in our community.
We cater for children from one to six years old, and offer bilingual and trilingual classes where children all learn English and Chinese (Putonghua and/or Cantonese). Almost all our classes have a maximum of 18 children. Two qualified early years teachers, operating in their native language, teach alongside each other, providing children with a rich language immersion.
Our campus is bright, modern and airy with twelve classrooms, a music room, large outdoor play space, equipped with a variety of climbing frames and resources for developing children’s physical skills, and a well resourced library. We are developing a small garden area for children to learn about nature. Music is taught by a specialist teacher to all classes.
At PIPS we believe that children learn best through actively engaging with each other, materials and their environment. Our approach is inquiry based and focuses on engaging children and challenging them.
