School History

St. Catherine’s International Kindergarten was founded in 1970 by Mrs. Christina Lau Chan. With a firm belief in the importance of language development from an early age, St. Catherine’s was one of the first kindergartens in Hong Kong to employ native English speakers to teach English.


Over the past forty-seven years St. Catherine’s has earned its reputation and high standing in the community by providing quality early education in line with our motto:“A Tradition of Excellence”.


Our unparalleled curriculum merges a strong academic foundation from the Eastern culture with good Early Childhood educational practices from the Western culture. The result is well-rounded children who are not only highly competent academically but who also demonstrate a love of learning and a wide range of abilities including thinking skills, creativity and problem solving.
