Our History

Hello! Thank you for looking up our history! It has been a wonderful journey for us! We brought back the sophisticated system, the comprehensive model, and the high standard from Canada.  We are so glad you are here to find out more about it! 

 

The seed of Kids Connect was planted while Emily was leading and supervising a clinical team that ultimately earned its reputation and recognition as the highest ranking clinical teams amongst 25 representing teams serving over hundreds of children in Toronto!  Throughout years of multiple accreditations from various accreditators, the team she led always earned the leading position.  

 

In 2010, Emily returned to Hong Kong and established various services for families and children.  We started from home - based service, to shared space, and now having our own space from one location to two sites!  With our growth mindset, we are definitely growing as years go!

2003 to 2011 - Excellent Program in Toronto

Emily accumulated so many years of work experience in Toronto and she was determined to bring it back to Hong Kong! 

2011 - Started Home Based Program in HK

We started the home - based program and many of our children are big boys and girls now! 

2012 - Developed LEGO x Social Skills Program in Hong Kong

We shared the space and partnered with the LEGO Education Centre in Hong Kong, which was extremely exciting to us!  Who doesn't love LEGO?  With LEGO being consistently rated as one of the most popular toys amongst children (and even adults!), this collaboration inspired us to develop many popular programs through the use of LEGO materials. 

Our children used LEGO to develop their collaborative and team work skills, communication skills, creativity, presentation skills and many more! We always love LEGO!

2013 - Expanded LEGO x Social Skills Program in China

We provided professional training to the staff from LEGO education in China.  The staff who attended came from their Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen offices and we had 3 days of intensive training! 

2015 - Kids Connect 1 (Klubhouse) Opened

With the rapidly growing programs and children that we have, we moved to a much bigger space.  We also changed our company name.  The new name is a much better reflection of our strong focus on making connections around the child! 

2016 - The Team in Hong Kong

We were so grateful to have our team photos taken by professional photographer! 

2017 - Kids Connect 2 (Kampus) Opened

We are so excited about our expansion! We meticulously design every single corner to best facilitate our target skills!  At the Kampus, the children have the unique benefits of receiving their tailor - made curriculum via one on one setting and the classroom settings.  The set - up allows an easy transitions from one setting to another, facilitating the development of classroom, social and group skills yet able to attend to other skills that would be most efficiently developed via one on one teaching.  

2018 - Social Thinking Clinical Training in Santa Clara, US

"Teaching Social Competencies - More than Social Skills" is a core concept of the Social Thinking.  For an individual to develop his or her social competencies, it requires the underlying foundations of social interest, self awareness, social awareness, self regulation, theory of mind, central coherence, and rich communication skills.  These foundations constitutes the social thinking skills for all of us to navigate in the social world.
