Education of Neighbourhood Realises Full Potential
Lifelong Learning Benefits the Community
Our Council believes in equality. It is fundamental that all persons, regardless of age, intelligence, language, nationality and financial situation, should be able to have the same opportunity to receive education. Therefore, our Council is committed to developing education services. Our Council takes a “people-oriented” approach to provide a balanced programme to foster the physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional development of the children. Our Council emphasises on the diversity among students and is dedicated to providing quality learning opportunities with appropriate care to the children. With good school-parent cooperation, we provide an optimised and ideal environment for students to grow up. In addition, our Council provides continuous learning for elders and people with disabilities for them to realise their potential or progressively get involved in the society for a fruitful life. Our Council also organises courses of the Employees Training Board to assist service users to re-enter the employment market, to sustain in their new posts, and to move up their career ladders.

All of the four nurseries are with Occasional Child Care Service, while the first three nurseries accept application from children with disabilities. Yuen Long Day Nursery and Tung Chung Day Nursery also provide Extended Hours Service to cater for the needs of double-income parents.
