Over the past few weeks, the South China Morning Post has been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our attendees, exhibitors and speakers. As a result, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone the Kindergartens Festival 2020 to Saturday, June 20 at the JW Marriott, Hong Kong. Learn More
Allison Banbury joined ESF Tung Chung International Kindergarten as principal in August 2018. She was previously vice principal at ESF Abacus, PYP Co-ordinator at ESF Tsing Yi, and principal for an education group in Hong Kong. She is passionate about working with young learners and has specialised in this phase of education since graduating with a UK Bachelor of Education degree in 1988. What inspires her about this age group is the natural curiosity with which 3-5 years olds approach learning, and the high level of engagement they bring to inquiries that are meaningful to them. She uses this knowledge to encourage her team to be responsive to children and foster a learning environment in which children are recognised as competent, capable and knowledgeable. She knows that strong home-school partnerships ensure success for all students, and she is committed to promoting positive working relationships between teachers and parents.
