    TutorTime and Kingston International School. My bb is 4 months old and I called TutorTime 2 weeks ago and have to be on the waiting list for their 6 months old playgroup which is held on Saturdays.

    Also, I have applied to Kingston International School for their 1 year old nursery this week as I was told that they are almost full for their 1 year old class.

    So I would suggest you to enroll asap with your selected nursery.

    Question

    can I ask a very fundamental question to all mommies - can you decide when to send your baby to nursery/playgroups, or you have to do it at the specified age ( of the playgroup/nursery)?

    I hear of 1 year old classes, but prefer to send bub over when he is 1.5.....would he be accepted, or would he have missed the enrollment time ???

    THANKS !

    Yes, you definitely can decide when you want to send your child in for playgroups. I didn't start my son on any formal playgroup until he was 18 months and even then it was only 1x a week. When he turned 2.5yo, we made it 3x per week. Playgroups are pretty informal and are, essentially, "play" groups (with some being more structured than others). It's just that some centres who offer playgroups are more popular than others, hence the wait lists, but with HK being such a transient place, places can often free up partly through the term.

    Nurseries often accept kids once they turn 2. Same situation as playgroups: the more popular (not necessarily better) nurseries might have wait lists, but you can always put your name down, if you want to.

    No need to over-stress. As far as I know, here in HK, a child does not HAVE to be in school until P1, although many parents would want to have their child/ren in kindy at the latest.
