Suspension of Face-to-Face Classes in Kindergartens and Kindergartens-cum-Child Care Centers

The Education Bureau will issue a letter to schools outlining the measures and arrangements to be taken during this period. Schools can utilize alternative modes to facilitate children’s learning at home and help maintain their curiosity and motivation for learning. In this regard, the Education Bureau reminds schools and parents to avoid prolonged use of electronic screen devices by young children and to ensure that children rest their eyes appropriately while using such devices.

Therefore, as a general principle, real-time online teaching in the form of e-learning is not applicable to kindergartens. The Education Bureau issued a letter to all kindergartens in Hong Kong on May 10th of this year, sharing some principles and strategies to support kindergarten students in learning at home for reference by schools.
