Welcome to Woodland Pre-Schools

Woodland Pre-Schools is an award-winning international pre-school and kindergarten group that has educated thousands of children in Hong Kong over generations. From six months to six years, from playgroup to pre-nursery and kindergarten programmes, our bespoke international curriculum is mapped to the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), with English, bilingual, and Mandarin classes to cater for children of varying language needs.

In 2024, our organisation begins our next chapter, joining the Guidepost Montessori school network. Our three campuses will be transformed this summer, reopening in August as Guidepost Montessori schools. Montessori’s child-centered principles have always been at the heart of the Woodland programmes. Completing this transition will mean a full, authentic Montessori curriculum designed for today’s students.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the Guidepost community.

We are currently hosting Private School Tours at all of our 3 campuses.

Tours will be led by the Head of School and are a great way to learn more about the Woodland Journey and how our international nursery and pre-school education can benefit your child. Come along and explore our exciting learning environments, experience our school facilities and meet our passionate and dedicated teaching teams! Our tours provide the perfect opportunity to ask questions and discuss your child’s future development at Woodland Pre-Schools. Each tour is tailored to you and your child’s needs.

We’d like to thank you and all the Woodland’s team for making it such a great experience for Sophia over the past years, especially during the challenges that Covid-19 has presented. You really do a wonderful job – thank you!

The Plifka Family

My son is currently in Playgroup. He has been at Woodlands since he was 8 months and we have loved seeing him progress in leaps and bounds. The experience he has taken away is invaluable. My husband and I would like to give a huge thanks to all the teachers and staff, especially, Ms Marianne. She has been brilliant in helping him to be more inquisitive. Also, we are so grateful knowing that he is in a safe, caring and loving environment.

Mrs Turner

Enrolling both kids at Woodland Happy Valley have been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Woodland lets the child learn at their own pace.  From Mercy’s first time in school till now, she has grown socially, emotionally and cognitively. Mercy loves her teacher and told me she wants to go to school every day. She has become confident, outgoing, very good at expressing her feelings and emotions and has an uncontrollable desire to learn.

Ms Leung

Emma came to Woodland Pre-school for Roller and Wriggler classes since she was 6 months old. The teachers are native English speakers and the classroom settings are full of excitement. Also, they have a high standard regarding hygiene and safety. Emma enjoys her lessons very much. The teachers are very caring and always help you out with some helpful parenting tips whenever you ask. I highly recommend this school to all of you.

Mrs Chung

We have been a Woodlands family through three children now (Rollers through Pre School), and have loved the teachers, the environment, the individual student attention and the communication with parents from the team at Beachside. Our children have come home every day with stories, artwork and new facts to share – and always with a smile. As a parent, you can’t ask for more!

Mrs Oliver

Our girls had a wonderful experience at Beachside! It’s a very social place with a great sense of community; special friendships are forged. Importantly for us, children have an opportunity to be creative and learn through play. At this early stage in the education journey it’s crucial to have happy, engaged learners. Both our girls looked forward to classes each day. We are very thankful for the time they spent at Beachside.

The Richardson Family

I am very happy with 3 calls a day, including group get together calls. Usually grandparents come to our home to take care of my daughter and play with her, but since the pandemic, they can’t visit her much and these calls are keeping her occupied. We are loving the activities and never thought shaving foam, hair gel and toothpaste can be used for sensorial activities. Thank you. My daughter also started to speak in English full sentences last week.
