    Help on pre-nursery

    We'll move from NY to HK at the end of July. Our daughter will be 2.5 year old by then, she goes to a montessori school full time, 5 days a week. Does anybody have suggustions as to montessori schools for her age? How about traditional and/or local schools? I saw some schools are IB, what is that? We'll probably settle down close to Central. How about suggestions for playgroups during summer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Hey there ttyyan,

    There are a few different types of kindergartens in Hong Kong. There are local ones with minimal English, bilingual ones with a full-time English teacher as well as a full-time Chinese teacher, and international English immersion ones. I suggest you consider a bilingual or international school as local schools usually has English lessons once or a few times a week, so that may not be what you want for your daughter.

    I personally work at a bilingual kindergarten as a native English teacher in a Pre-Nursery class, and I have quite a few children who are mostly English and spoke little Chinese to begin with. Young children adapt quickly, so I'm sure your daughter will love whatever school you end up choosing for her :)
