    Question Mandarin Pre-school or Kindergarten

    We want to put our 2 yr old next year in a Pre-school / Kindergarden that is primarily Putunghua.
    I do not need an International School, but most of the Local schools I have visitied have instruction in Cantonese and then once a week in Putonghua.
    Does anyone know of a K1 / K2 programme that teaches 50% english / Putonghua?
    I think 3 languages woudl confuse him - so if I can would like to find him some where that does this.
    Thanks

    Hello Altans,

    You could try Kiangsu & Chekiang Int'l kindergarten located at North Point, they offer a daily Putonghua lesson. You can contact them at this number: 2570 4594 or visit their website: www.kcs.edu.hk I am not so sure about Victoria kindergarten though, I will give you the contact number so you can ask them what questions you want to know. Their are 2 locations: The Westwood (Belcher's) 2542 7006. Causeway Bay 2578 9998. I hope this could help you.

    Thanks

    Thanks
    I have looked both up on Internet and phoned them. Kiang Su only intoriduce Putong Hua at K3 level - as most of the local kindergartens.
    I am interested in the Victoria one though and they were very helpful on the phone so have got the forms and will pop down tomorrow to have a look around.
    Seems mad to be doing all this when he is only 2!

    Rani, do you know if Lingnan has implemented the Mandarin already?

    What's the teaching method in Lingnan? Are they bilingual (English/Mandarin)? I've checked their site but there's no English translation so I can't fully understand.
