2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the incorporation of Leapfrog. Leapfrog began on 1st April 1992 and was set up by the Hong Kong Pre-school Playgroups Association in collaboration with six families looking to start their own playgroup in the Sai Kung area. Within the first four years the playgroup was at Li Po Chun United World College after which it moved to the Sai Kung Community Centre, living out of boxes of donated toys until the site here in Pak Tam Chung was found in 1996. It was impossible to even get into the site because of the overgrowth so with the help of the local police force and volunteer parents the path, steps and playground were cleared. It took a year of hard work and some serious fundraising to get the school ready and on 6th January 1997 the playgroup opened its doors.
The parents who first dreamt of the idea of a playgroup for their little ones always hoped that Leapfrog would prosper for years to come. We can proudly say we are an established non-profit school with fabulous facilities and teachers and are here to stay! We have been lucky to have the support of many families over the years as well as local businesses through sponsorship of our annual fundraising parties and we hope that many of you and your families will join us for this celebration.
In celebration of our 25 year journey we are hosting an anniversary party on Saturday 21st October 2017. This event will be held at the Victoria Recreation Club (VRC), Emerald Bay, Tai Mong Tsai Road. Festivities start from 3pm with a fun-filled afternoon for families and lots of activities planned for the children. There will be games and musical performances too with these finishing at 6pm. From 7pm until late dancing shoes are required as there will be live music from some of our fabulous parents, both past and present, and more food and a bar available in the club house.
