Life in the happy lane at Fairchild

Education | 16 Jun 2020

Our mission at Fairchild is to cultivate curiosity, creativity and confidence through bringing the outdoors in, and in a happy learning environment.  Through our philosophy of following the Reggio Emilia approach, we are one of the few schools in Hong Kong which genuinely honours that children are capable individuals and able to direct their own learning through following their interests. We embrace the learning journey as one in which children can fully enjoy early childhood, after all, we only have one childhood.

Our world of today increasingly shows that children need to have skills other than knowledge - they need to be able to communicate effectively, to collaborate with peers, to have critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  These are all nurtured through play and building positive relationships in our classroom settings, supported by a close working relationship with our families and our school community.  

Day to day hands-on learning experiences help children to find their way in the world.  Our classrooms are well resourced with natural materials and opportunities for children to engage in many sensory activities, which appeal to all their senses.  Our well-designed schools help children naturally feel comfortable and at home, ready to play and learn as soon as they arrive at school.  Regardless of whether they are in the classroom, our treehouse, or shared discovery areas such as our vertical garden or creative arts space, children will have fun and access to a range of engaging activities, including close encounters with our resident pets, such as our earthworms, turtles, fish, frog or hamster!

Learning through play is not only how children learn best, but is most developmentally appropriate. Their learning through hands-on experiences prepares our children for the very best start in their learning journey.  It is a happy and rewarding process for us to see our children move to excellent international and local schools, both in Hong Kong and overseas.  Why not come and visit our playgroup in Tin Hau, or our kindergarten in Sai Ying Pun to see our unique schools for yourself - make your child happy!
