Children start their schooling at an early age. Hence, it would be ideal if play could be integrated into their school life. Starting from 2011, we have introduced play in special schools. Through demonstration, training for teachers, on-site consultancy and de-briefing and parents’ talks, we have helped teachers to arrange free play on their own.

In response to the requirement that “half-day and whole-day kindergartens should arrange children to participate in free play lasting for no less than 30 and 50 minutes respectively every day” stipulated in the “Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide” issued by the Education Bureau in early 2017, we seized the opportunity to launch the “Seed School Training Programme”. With different characteristics of schools in mind, we arranged demonstration, training and on-site consultancy and de-briefing to equip school teachers master the skills of arranging free play.

We hope that the concept of “Seed Schools” will be expanded so that free play time can be extended from kindergartens to all pre-school settings, special schools and primary schools.
