    Dumb question (please forgive) - how old should our kids be when we start putting them into school in HK, and do they already get homework at 1 or 2 years of age??

    Hi H&A
    I went for Bauhinia because like Millerwhisk said its evenually coming to DB and there wasnt a debenture to pay. SS House Kindy in DB is for ages 2-6 yrs and you dont have to pay a debenture.

    My daughter is currently attending SS House DB and loves it. The kids are a real mixture of expat and local. I dont know about the SS House bus service. Mabe give Ms Sabita a call and she can give you some information: 2987 8143

    Jaetee, in the UK system that applies to most of the international schools in HK, primary year 1 (P1) starts at around age 5, but many international schools have nursery and reception years prior to that. These are also equivalent to K1 and K2 in kindergartens, and are for 3 and 4 year olds. For schools which do have reception class, it's difficult to skip that class and do kindergarten instead until P1, because their P1 class will be full with the kids who did reception class.

    It seems most people do K1 and K2 here, which they would not in western countries, which I think is partly influenced by the local school system, where the "good" schools do not accept children into P1 who have not attained a certain standard of Chinese writing ability taught in K2.
