Bridge – Integrated Education Project
Pilot Scheme on On-site pre school rehabilitation service

The government in its Policy Address announced to use Lotteries Fund to provide a 2-year experimental project in 2015/16 to provide on–site pre school rehabilitation services to children with special needs.

The scale and scope of this service were unprecedented. There are participations from 16 social organisations to provide 450 kindergarten and kindergarten cum child care centres. About half of the children on the waiting list could receive this service.

Our two teams have begun its operations on 1 December 2015, the name of the project was "Bridge – Integrated Education Project". We served 29 kindergartens and kindergarten cum child care centres all around Hong Kong in which the 200 children on the waiting list are served.

With our over 30 years of experience on infant stimulation and expertise of our multi disciplinary professional teams, our service supplements with the treatment and training of our seven early education and training centers.
