2023/24 K1 Admission Arrangements Flowchart

Parents apply to the EDB for the RC
from September to November 2022
  KGs process K1 admission applications
for the 2023/2024 school year
Upon receipt of the applications with all necessary information and documents provided, the EDB will generally take six to eight weeks to complete processing of the applications and issue the RC/AP to parents1 by post
KGs inform parents of the application result before 16 December 2022
If application is successful   If application is not successful

Parents register with one KG during the Centralised Registration Dates
(i.e. 5 to 7 January 2023)
by submitting the RC / AP
and paying registration fee2 

  Parents refer to the K1 vacancy information
released by the EDB
after the Centralised Registration Dates
(i.e. from early February 2023)

1. If parents cannot submit the RC/AP to the KG their child has been admitted to during the Centralised Registration Dates, the KG concerned may not be able to complete registration for their child. Hence, parents are required to submit application to the EDB within the designated period.

2. If a child is admitted after the Centralised Registration Dates, his/her parent is still required to submit the RC/AP for registration. If the parent intends to change school for his/her child after registering with a KG, he/she is required to get back the RC/AP from the KG with which he/she has registered. Upon getting back the RC/AP from a KG, the KG concerned will no longer reserve the place for the child. Normally, the registration fee paid to the KG with which the parent has registered will not be refunded.
