Operational Definitions
The number of children aged 2-6 enrolled in kindergarten or child care centers, as reported in the Hong Kong Annual Digest of Statistics per 100,000 children aged 2-6. Child care centers include subvented /aided/government full day nursery, residential nursery, mixed centres; non-profit-making full day nursery, half-day nursery, half-day playgroup; and private full day nursery, half day nursery, half-day playgroup and mixed centres. Enrolment in child care centers are estimated as 90% of the number of places in these centers.
Footnote
All figures are collected from annual Digest since 1981.
According to Annual Digest, upon the implementation of the Harmonisation of Pre-primary Services on 1 September 2005, the definition of child care centres has been re-defined as service for children aged 0 to 3. All day nurseries (serving children aged 2 to 6) and day nursery-cum-day crèches (serving children 0 to 6) have been converted into kindergarten-cum-child care centres under the monitoring of the Education and Manpower Bureau. Meanwhile, the provision of child care centres, special child care centres and residential child care centres remain under the monitoring of the Social Welfare Department. Thus, from 2006 onwards, figures of this indicator are calculated by summing up

(1) the no. of enrolment in kindergarten (Annual Digest 12.5) ;
(2) the estimated no. of places in Subvented/aided/gov't Day Centre (2-3 yr) & Residential Child Care Centre (0-6 yr), Non-profit-making Residential Child Care Centre (0-6 yr), private Day Centre (2-3 yr) & Residential Child Care Centre (0-6 yr) Data Source: Census and Statistics Department, 1991a, 1995b, 1998b and 1999g.
