    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    The mission is to give all multicultural learners equal opportunity to receive education and care in an inclusive environment in kindergartens in Hong Kong. The project aims to fill in the gaps to foster these children's learning of Chinese and to facilitate their early integration into the local education system and the community. Based on the concept of capacity building, the designated team from The Education University of Hong Kong will focus on the development and professional training of four particular groups of practitioners, namely social service professionals (P), school leaders (L), educators (E), and multicultural teaching assistants (M). The PLEM capacity building is expected to support inclusive education in local ECE settings through a home-school-community model taking the cultural responsive approach.
