Abstract

本文簡單介紹一項正在進行的香港幼稚園健康計劃。該項目於 2005年獲香港優質教育基金資助,並獲世界衞生組織西太平洋辦公室的贊助和支持,以香港健康學校獎勵計劃為發展藍本,附設健康幼稚園獎勵計劃。整個計劃是由香港中文大學醫學院健康教育及促進健康中心主辦,香港教育學院幼兒教育學系協辦,是本港首個由健康專家與幼教專家共同合作,以推廣健康幼稚園為理念的研究項目。在項目第一年裏,本港十位學前教育工作者接受健康校園的培訓,成為全港四個地區的健康顧問。幾個協作性研究團隊已經初步建立,令健康及教育兩方面專家可以相互切磋,協同合作,為發展一個切合時代需要的學前教育健康課程而共同努力。
This paper introduces the Project “Capacity Building for Pre-School Children: Health Promoting Kindergarten”, which was funded by the Quality Education Fund in 2005. This is a collaborative project jointly administered by the Faculty of Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Department of Early Childhood Education at the Hong Kong Institute of Education. This introduction first outlines the main health problems of young children in Hong Kong and then introduces the major objectives and functions of this project. In the first year, 10 teacher educators have received training to become District Health Advisors and are therefore able to provide advisory services to 100 participating kindergartens in Hong Kong. In addition, several research teams including health workers and early childhood educators have been established, in pursuit of a quality preschool health curriculum for Hong Kong children.
