This is an official announcement that after 8 wonderful years, Babington Education’s relationship with Oxford University Press (China) Limited (herein, OUP) has ceased on 1 January 2019.
Babington will continue to offer the Read Write Inc. programme. The teaching methodologies, curriculum and most importantly, the learning objectives will continue to follow Ruth Miskin’s Read Write Inc. (RWI) phonics system. To compensate for any inconvenience caused, Babington will offer a 10% tuition fee discount for all RWI students between 1 January to 28 February 2019.
Babington is proud to have been OUP’s longest serving RWI accredited centre offering top quality phonics education to children in Hong Kong. Starting in 2010 with one single centre on Babington Path (yes, that’s where our name comes from), Babington now has a network of 12 centres with 10 of them offering RWI. Babington is proud to be the largest and most experienced RWI provider in Hong Kong.
Will my child’s learning outcome be affected?
No. Not at all. All Babington teachers are trained by Ruth Miskin Training, which is the official RWI trainers based in London. Babington’s teacher training programme has far exceeded the training offered by OUP. At Babington, all teachers go through a 12 week teacher training programme. Furthermore, every single year in September, Babington suspends operation across Hong Kong to invest in teacher training. We mandatorily re-train every teacher, every single year. Our teacher training programme is the single reason why we are the strongest RWI provider in Hong Kong, delivering the best results for children wishing to learn phonics. Since we will continue to use Ruth Miskin’s RWI materials published by Oxford University Press, along with Ruth Miskin’s teaching methodologies, we can guarantee that the learning outcomes will not be affected.
Babington is committed to maintain the high standards of teaching and learning expected by our parents.
