Application for the "Registration Certificate for Kindergarten Admission" 

 1. The Government will implement the "Free Quality Kindergarten Education Scheme" (hereafter referred to as "Scheme") starting from the 2017/18 school year. 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 as "RC") to EDB from September to November 2023. The "RC" will be open for applications in August 2023 and EDB will announce and upload the details of application onto EDB's website (link to be inserted) 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.

• Upon obtaining permission from the Director 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.

1. Interview performance 

2. The applicant with sibling(s) currently studying in the kindergarten will be given due priority consideration 

3. The applicant from families in need will be given due priority consideration when applying for whole day / long whole day classes
