actually, I am quite interested to see what kind of home work different preschool have.

Right now, my N1 son in Sparkletots get about
3 pages a week of "homework" from his Phoenics class in school.
basically the home work involve doing things like pasting stickers on the correct box, colouring on the pictures and tracing dotted lines on letters. So one week he do A, next week he do B and we are suppose to go over all the few words with A sound with a CD of songs as we do the work sheet. I find it kind of fun and My boy jump and sing the songs and want to do the stickers excercise in the rest of the book... so I don't really think of it as "work"

No homework for my K1 kid so far :) no forcing of words writing. a lot of activities in school that encourage creativity. school teaches kid to recognise words, and that's about all.

To my surprise, when I enroll my dd to MRC Learning centre in K2 this year, there is a lot of homework. It started off from N2 then K1. My dd lose out as she did not know anything. Slowly she learn and able to cope with spelling, reading, writing, maths and chinese. She also learn a bit of moral study and science.
My dd was now temporary away from class for 3 months in China together with my wife in hometown. The challenge is when she is back in July to attend MRC she will be facing the problem in English.

My gal is in N2 with a full day childcare. Never have any homework but she did quite a bit of handicrafts in school. But she learnt lots of words (Eng & Chinese) and able to read books on her own. I let her do some writing and IQ activites at home (bought from Maha Yuyi Bookstore).
