    International Pre schools/Kindergarten in Shatin Vicinity

    Hi there,

    We are just about to relocte from the UK and live in Shatin. We have a 3 yr old boy and need to find a good, international Pre school/Kindergarten within 20 mins bus/train ride of Shatin.

    We have registered with ESF but it seems full, can you please help to provide details of others?

    Thanks so much in advance for any help you can give (it is proving quote difficult to find relevant lists or websites).

    I know what you mean! We moved to Tai Po from NZ last year and had a really difficult time finding any info before we came. In Sha Tin is ICS www.ics.edu.hk and a little further away in Tai Po is Hong Luk Yuen www.hlyis.edu.hk and the Norweigan International www.nis.edu.hk (short walk from KCR station) My son, who is now 4, started out in an international class in local school but it really was a bit 'local' for him ie he is not good at sitting down and being quiet all the time! I am starting him at the Norweigan in Sept and they have really small class sizes and a family like feel so I am hoping it suits better.

    Good luck with your search and your move.

    I should add that when you get here there are dozens of local schools with international classes taught by native english speakers. The only problem is that Hong Kong doesn't seem to have embraced the internet as a marketing tool so you will need to speak to someone who lives in the area to find the schools. As far as the fees go - not a lot of difference between my sons last school and the Norwegian.

    Hi Mummies,

    We'll be moving to Ma On Shan and we're looking for a kindergarten. I've shortlisted a few and I will be very grateful to anyone who can provide me info on them, including fees. Many thanks!

    Would recommend Hong Lok Yuen, in Tai Po (about 20mins away) They follow a British curriculum. Plus the majority of the children who attend are from English speaking families from overseas. That way, your child would be happier since he will be able to communicate w/ his classmates.
