Abstract

This qualitative study investigated integration education in Hong Kong mainstream Kindergarten-Cum-Child Care Centres (KCCCCs) for children aged 2-6 years. It interviewed 24 teachers (mainstream and special education teachers) and 4 principals in 4 KCCCCs in Hong Kong. The data was collected from June 2009 to June 2010 and involved focus group interviews, individual interviews, documentary research and case studies. It explores teachers' perceptions about integration education policy and practice. It recommends improved Government funding, training and guidelines for integration programs as well as better public education about the benefit of mainstreaming.
