Application for the “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission”

  1. Under the kindergarten (KG) education scheme (hereafter referred to as Scheme”), each child who can receive education in Hong Kong will only be issued a registration document and all Scheme-KGs can only admit children holding a valid registration document.
  2. Parents are required to submit an application for the Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission (hereafter referred to as“RC”) to the EDB from September to November 2024. The RC will be open for applications in September 2024 and the EDB will announce and upload the details of application onto the https://www.edb.gov.hk/k1-admission_e in due course. Upon receipt of the applications with all necessary information and documents provided, the EDB will generally take six to eight weeks to complete processing of the applications and issue the RC to applicants who are eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme by post. If a child cannot obtain an RC as he/she can receive education in Hong Kong but is not eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme 2 , the EDB will then issue a Kindergarten Admission Pass (hereafter referred to as“AP”) to the child concerned for registration and admission to a Scheme-KG but the parents concerned are required to pay full school fees before deduction of subsidy under the Scheme as shown on the Fees Certificate of the KG to which the child is admitted.

2 Upon obtaining permission from the Director of Immigration, non-local children (such as children holding a form of recognizance, children whose parent(s) is/are holding a student visa, etc.) can receive education in Hong Kong but they are not eligible for subsidy under the Scheme.
