    Preschools

    Hi

    I'm a bit confused about preschools and when and how you should put a child's name down. Is there a resource which I can read which tells me the process for ESF vs. International schools? Or does anyone have some guidance. My son is 18 months old and I am stressing that we have already missed the boat by not putting his name down somewhere!

    Thanks
    SB2

    Hi SB2,

    I also want to send my son to ESF school too. According to their website, my son needs to apply durning Oct this year. It is because he was born in 2007 and he is 22mths now. He will goes to an international kindergarten next months for TOTS class in Tai Koo Shing too. The teacher said most of their will get into ESP P1 but I will also try the ESF K1 application. Good Luck.

    I am so new at this. What is an ESP school? What are the differences?

    You should get the Playtimes school guide and check out the playschools/ Kindies on it. If you have preference for a particular school call/ email them or just visit their website to get more info.
    Most pre schools take in kids at 18 or 24 months. You can send your child to a playschool anytime you want.
    Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong but as per the Govt guidelines to be eligible to go to Kindie in a particular year a child has to be 2 yrs and 8 months old by Oct of the same year. My daughter is March 2008 born and so I will apply for ESF kindie for her in Oct 2010 and she starts going to kindie in Sept 2011. Thats what the Asst Admin told me when I sent her a query.

    I got my copy from my daughter's playschool. You could call this number 29736131 and get a copy directly. Or else try book stores. Or borrow my copy if you can't get it anywhere :)
