Children and families at Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten are able to access the award-winning ‘Espresso’ service at home. We use Espresso in school to help motivate, engage and support learning in the classroom. Children from Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten can continue to enjoy what they have been using at school, and you can be involved in your child’s learning at home.
Espresso is an online learning resource that provides a wide range of materials. It contains thousands of videos and multimedia activities, as well as a weekly news service — all designed by teaching professionals.
Espresso includes a Home learning area and Parents’ guide with information to help you use the service.
