Chinese Preschool

Hi

Does anyone know of any preschool that conducts their lessons entirely in Chinese? I am referring to a 5-day program, not enrichment.

Thanks!

Hi all,

Pls also note that Nanyang Kindergarten has high turnover of teachers.. Yr child may get different teachers in a year. They also have relief young teachers with no experience. It all depends on yr luck. U may want to find out more before putting yr child.

Barker Kindergarten has Chinese enrichment 5 days a week ( include lunch) and fees is subsidised. Very reasonable package :lol:

Hi Cornucopia

I am really surprised. I thought it was a very good school. When i tried to register, there was already a waitlist of more than 300 parents!!! Is your child or anyone you know studying there?

Thanks

Hi mummy huskies :lol: ,

U may wanna check around. Every school has their pros & cons.. :shock:
U may also wanna chk out St James. A few of my frens put their children there & i would say all gave excellent reviews. Addition to that, fees r reasonable. In my opinion,it is definitely a more wholesome school! NYK gonna increase their fees to $1400 next yr 2009! Note: Before gst.. :P

Glad to see a thread already started on this topic. I'm amazed at how little information is easily found on this topic, considering it seems that Mandarin-only curriculum's seem to be quite popular (judging from the waitlists mentioned on this thread). So it seems a little ironic - simply supply/demand dynamics, that there is such a limited number of options of nursery's & kindergarten's offering mostly Mandarin curriculum's (let's say more than 60%). Anybody have ideas on why?

Anybody have an updated list of schools besides the ones already mentioned? Also any suggestions on improving my chances of getting my daughter into one of these programs, i.e. does long waiting list mean I should be applying 1 year or even more before she is of admission age?

Final question, after nursery & kindergarten are the following Chinese school options in primary and beyond similarly difficult to find? In that case I should ask you all for the names now, so I can put my daughter on the waitlist even 5 years in advance.... I guess I'm joking, but maybe it's that serious. Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated.
