About ESF Educational Services Ltd.

ESF Educational Services Ltd (ESL) is an affiliate company of the English Schools Foundation and was established in 1994 to provide kindergarten education, language classes and extra-curricular activities. It also operates two Private Independent Schools (PIS), Renaissance College in Ma On Shan and Discovery College in Discovery Bay.


We operate four international kindergartens across Hong Kong. Children at ESF International Kindergartens are actively encouraged and motivated to learn through play and inquiry and by experiencing for themselves the world around them. Three of the kindergartens are IB World Schools authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) to offer the Primary Years Programme and the fourth is a candidate school.

We offer a broad and diverse range of out of school sports and language programmes for children, making use of the facilities at ESF schools. We aim to provide quality learning experiences that are enriching and enjoyable and that enable children to develop their skills and knowledge through carefully structured programmes.
