Welcome to Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong! We are delighted that you are considering our world-leading Pre-School for your child, and we are excited in bringing out the greatness within!
2018/19 Programmes Offered
In the Academic Year 2018-19, the Pre-School is opening half-day programmes for Pre-Nursery (2-3 years) and Kindergarten 1 (3-4 years), and Kindergarten 2 (4-5 years).

Parents who opt to register their child for both morning and afternoon sessions will enjoy a 20% discount in school tuition fee.
In considering applications from prospective students, we are very conscious of building diversity, so we welcome families of any nationality. We also take into consideration how our values as an institution align with the families of our students, so we make it mandatory to meet the parents and the child/children.
Applications for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic year are now open. The Admissions Office will accept and review applications on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
We are looking to build a diverse pupil population. With the relevant admissions policies in place, we are committed to promoting the formation of this vibrant community.
The school is open to considering pupils who may need some support in English in the short term, if their home environment can support their learning in English.

All children will be required to meet the school’s entrance requirements, meet the School Principal and attend the enrolment observation session, irrespective of priority status.
