Welcoming Woodland Pre-Schools in Hong Kong to the Cognita family
Woodland Pre-Schools is the latest to join the Cognita family of schools in Asia.
Woodland Pre-Schools was founded in 1978 and for 40 years has set the standard for quality international pre-school education in Hong Kong. The group offers classes for more than 2,600 children aged between six months and six years across nine campuses, located across Hong Kong Island and in Sai Kung.
The Woodland approach offers a choice of either the Montessori method or traditional UK Pre-School standard early childhood education, taught by highly-experienced teachers and with a focus on celebrating the multi-cultural flavour of Hong Kong and that of the schools’ communities.
Michael Drake, CEO of Cognita Asia said:
“I am delighted to be welcoming Woodland Pre-Schools to the Cognita family. All our schools around the world have a shared focus – achieving academic excellence, building character and fostering a global mindset. And for us this focus can start at a very early age.
“There is already synergy between this and the care and education provided by Woodland’s staff. I look forward to working with the teams to further build on that, and to providing an exceptional experience for every child that begins their educational journey with us.
He added: “I also would like to thank Woodland’s founders, Lorraine and David Hughes, for their commitment to the education of the youngest children in Hong Kong over the last 40 years. As Cognita we are delighted to be able to bring forward the Woodland family in Hong Kong.”
Woodland becomes Cognita’s 69th school world-wide and its 11th in Asia.
