    Hi, Leeah's mom,
    If you're looking for English speaking kindergarten, why would you want to send your child to Baptist University Kindergarten? There are a few english ones in N.T., such as Hong Lok Yuen Kindergarten, Japanese International School, Nature Education Kindergarten and Boxhill (Ma On Shan).

    Thank you~!!do you know the websites for those kindergartens?

    The reason why I try to send my kid to Baptist was that my husband works near by, so it would be easy to take her and pick her up. but anyways, do you know the websites for those kindergartens? I can't find...

    And one more thing, do you know any Englilsh & Mandarin speaking kindergartens??? My friend wants to know~
    It would be very grateful if you can help me out. thank you~!

    www.hlyis.edu.hk (for Hong Lok Yuen International School and Kindergarten).

    Are you looking for English/Mandarin Kindergartens in the NT?

    Kiangsu Chekiang Kindergarten is Mandarin/English but it is on HK Island.

    Leeah's mom,

    I am also looking at kindergartens in N.T. for my daughter and I am happy to share with you the info I've got.

    Boxhill (http://www.boxhill.com.hk)
    -- Very new and is run by an Australian. There isn't much track record about the school because it is too new. The admission age for nursery class is 2, but there are also playgroups available for 18 mths old. Heard that they will have an Open Day sometime in Oct.

    Japanese International School (http://www.jis.edu.hk)
    -- There is always a misperception that JIS only takes Japanese students, but in fact, they also have an English section. Admission age for reception class is 4 but they are only taking 20 students each year.

    Nature Education Kindergarten (http://www.nekhk.com)
    -- Opened in 2002 and is run by a Canadian lady. It is not meant to be an "international" kindergarten because students will have an equal chance to learn both English and Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin). Having said that, the classes are very multi-cultural though. 70% of the students who graduated last year got accepted to local english primary schools and 30% got into international primary schools. The principal, Ms Lola Louie, is very trueful in education and you can call her to arrange for a school visit. I just did one a while ago!

    Hong Lok Yuen Kindergarten (http://www.hlyis.edu.hk)
    -- Don't know too much about this kindergarten because I am not planning to send my daughter there. My friend's son studies there and he can speak very good Mandarin now. But 99% of his time only speaks English and that's something I don't want my daughter to learn from.
