2023/24 K1 Admission Arrangements Flowchart
Application for “Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission”

1. Under the Kindergarten 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 students 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 EDB from September to November 2022. The “RC” will be open for applications in September 2022 and EDB will announce and upload the details of application onto EDB’s website https://www.edb.gov.hk/en/edu-system/preprimary-kindergarten/kindergarten-k1-admissionarrangements/index.html in due course. Upon receipt of the applications with all necessary information and documents provided, 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 student cannot obtain an “RC” as he/she can receive education in Hong Kong but is not eligible for receiving subsidy under the Scheme1 , EDB will then issue a “Kindergarten Admission Pass” (hereafter referred to as “AP”) to the student 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.

3. Upon obtaining permission from the Senior teacher 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.

4. If parents cannot present the “RC” / “AP” to the KG their child has been admitted to during the “centralised registration dates”, the KG concerned may not be able to complete registration for their child. Hence, parents are required to submit application to the EDB within the designated period.

5. If an applicant is admitted after the “centralised registration dates”, he/she is still required to submit the “RC” / “AP” for registration.  If an applicant wishes to change school after registering with a KG, he/she is required to get back the   “RC” / “AP” from the KG with which he/she has registered. Upon getting back the “RC” / “AP” from a KG, the KG concerned will no longer reserve the place for the applicant.  Normally, the registration fee paid to the KG with which the applicant has registered will not be refunded.
