English Playgroups in Hong Kong we’ve tried and tested
With branches in Wan Chai and TST, Baumhaus offers some of the most popular English playgroups in Hong Kong, and for good reason. The company embraces a holistic approach to learning through creative arts, for children aged 0-6 years-old. Kindermusik classes incorporate movement and music while fostering a sense of creativity and individuality. Older kids will love the new DramaLab classes that blend performance with play and improvisation. Best of all, they also offer a free trial class so that you can see how it all works.
Baumhaus has branches across Hong Kong.

Ages 0-2 are welcome every Thursday from 2:30-4:30pm at the Fanny Li Hall of the cathedral, and the charge is just $20/donation.
