Who we are?

The Hong Kong Council of Early Childhood Education and Services (CECES) was founded in 1982 as a charitable NGO under the Hong Kong government Inland Revenue’s Section 88.

Our mission is to provide informal, out-of-school learning with the aim of nurturing children’s many talents through hands on experiential learning. Our education programmes aim to promote harmonious and respectful coexistence amongst people of different cultures and economic backgrounds.

In addition to our regular English language curricula and Healthy Living programmes, our education focus in the coming decade is on environmental sustainability and nature-based learning.

Kindergarten Department

In 2010, the Hong Kong Council of Early Childhood Education and Services established its Kindergarten department. We mainly provide foreign English (NETS) and Putonghua (NMT) tutors in kindergartens, as well as general language teacher training, after-school interest classes and other activities. Our aim is to improve the language level at local kindergartens, and for our students to ultimately become biliterate (i.e. master written Chinese and English) and bilingual (i.e. speak fluent English and Mandarin). With 40 years of teaching experience, CECES promises to always provide professional services. From our frontline language tutors, to the responsible director of logistics, we promise to put forth all of our efforts in helping kindergartens solve problems and provide high quality education for their students.
