Reserve a Place at the Upcoming Virtual Open Day and Bilingual Taster Sessions at Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong

If well-directed education and the future of your child is at stake, it pays to choose a pre-school with great care. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the family of Malvern schools invariably appears at the top of educational guides in the UK, Hong Kong, Qingdao, Chengdu and Egypt since its foundation in Malvern, UK in 1865. Malvern College opened its first overseas school, Malvern College Qingdao, in September 2012 closely followed by Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong in 2017 and Malvern College Hong Kong in 2018. This is a school wholeheartedly committed to providing a holistic education encompassing global understanding, critical thinking, leadership and teamwork. While the results are fantastic, Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong offers a multitude of opportunities to see the school in action during the forthcoming free-of-charge Bilingual Virtual Taster Sessions and Online Open Day.

The same adorable act becomes a bit of an irritant when we are in a rush to get things done by a certain time so that it can fit into our schedule. From getting ready for school in the morning to writing a statement of purpose for college applications, when we run out of patience and time, we get frustrated and end up doing it for them.

“I don’t know how we are going to do this. I have taken the next 3 days off. But after that, with both me and my wife working from home and kids having nothing to do, nowhere to go.
