Kindergartens with French Educational System [fr]

The attaché for educational and linguistic affairs in the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau provides expertise and supports schools and kindergartens for French-speaking families.

There are 3 kindergartens providing official French programs in Hong Kong. They provide well-developed linguistic programs. Given the long waiting list of enrollment in LFI, the 3 kindergartens are good schooling alternatives.

The request of agreement from the Agence pour l’enseignement du français à l’étranger (AEFE, Agency for French Teaching Abroad) is in process and it has been supported by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau. The application instruction is jointly compiled by the Consulate General (Department of Cooperation and Cultural Action) and the Inspector of the French Ministry of National Education. If the agreement is approved, assistance to the recruitment and personal training of qualified French teachers of French Ministry of National Education, as well as the access to scholarships for families will be provided.

The attaché of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau is an adviser for the schools providing official programs and teaching resources. At this moment, the priority is given to the development of bilingual French-English curricula (and also multi-lingual with the teaching of Chinese). This orientation meets the demands of families and is adapted to the multicultural context of Hong Kong. Moreover, the curricula should align with the objectives and timetables of the French official school programs in order to obtain the agreement.

These kindergartens are good choices for families, being geographically diversified and providing multicultural education. In the French system, kindergartens are part of the primary school system. The 3 Hong Kong kindergartens are therefore gradually turning into primary schools.
