Cooperating directly with Reggio Children

The first School in Hong Kong to collaborate
directly with Reggio Children

We are the first Italian School opening in Hong Kong, and cooperating directly with Reggio Children, the well-known Italian educational institution, whose preschool was cited in 1991 by the American “Newsweek” magazine as the most advanced in the world for early childhood education. Nowadays, Reggio Children is inspiring schools in more than 140 countries.

The Italian International Kindergarten will open for the school year 2019/2020. The kindergarten premises can welcome up to 200 pupils and will offer two curricula, “Italian/English, plus Chinese language and culture” and “English/Chinese plus Italian language and culture“, both with half and whole-day options.

The founders of this school have been supporting and successfully managing the Accredited Italian Embassy Kindergarten and Primary School in Beijing since the time of its establishment in 2015 ( They have entrusted the same pedagogical team of Beijing to organize and supervise the establishment of this school, which is aimed at meeting the demand of an advanced international education of both the Italian & Hong Kong foreign community and, obviously, of the large Chinese local community.

The Summer Playgroup activities have officially started! Children in the Bunny, Panda and Monkey group spent a couple of hours creating colorful cloud and rain-themed artworks, engaging in fun experiments with shaving cream and watercolors, and exploring the sensory, fine motor skills, science, reading and role-play corners that the teachers prepared according to each age group. Every one of us at the Italian International Kindergarten enjoyed spending time with the children and is looking forward to meeting them again during the next Playgroup sessions on Thursday, July 4th!

About Reggio Children

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy originated in Italy, in the city of Reggio Emilia, by Loris Malaguzzi, himself an educator, a psychologist, and a philosopher.

The Reggio Approach is based on the image of the child, and of human beings, as possessing strong potentials for development and as a subject of rights who learns and grows in the relationships with others.

Distinctive characteristics are the participation of families, the collegial work of all the personnel, the importance of the educational environment, the presence of the atelier and the figure of the atelierista, the in-school kitchen, and the pedagogical coordinating team.
