hi niumama, u might want to chk w the schools?

I sent my kids to Kim Keat Christian school as the teachers and principals are great and they accepted my kids though I am non-Christian... so it really depends on the pre-school?

good luck!

I don't think you have to be the same religion though some church based kindergarten give piority to their church members.

I think the sch will not discriminate students who are non believers. The issue should be that u as parents, do you mind your preschoolers learning, singing about other religion? There are fair share of bible stories, songs of praise, prayers before sch and meals for church kindy .

Registration wise, some church kindy I know of has different phases with priority given to siblings of existing students and church goers before releasing the bAlance vacancies to the public.

kids are like a sponge. If they pick up the religious stuff, would you mind? Especially if your family is from a different religion. Some parents wouldnt, but I believe many would. Should we leave these to a later age?

Most Christian kindies would accept kids from different religious background. I think religion is a very personal and sensitive matter and it's really up to individuals. It's really what one is comfortable with.
