    Reg WKS, i have seen quite a few kids in the school with chinese mom and westerner dad. There is a mixed lot of children, i know a couple of chinese families who are from canada and the kids are in WKS. Most of the kids speak very good english and that is the only language that is spoken in the school. During the briefing for parent voluntar program, the parents were told that they could speak only english when talking to the kids and not mandarin/cantonese.
    They will be having the school visits in january, so you need to go and check yourself, the staff answers all your questions in detail and you will get a better understanding of the culture and school program.

    Discovery Mind also has a bi-lingual class. Excellent academic reputation.

    Hi, DMK(discovery mind) is quite academic compared with other kindergartens in Db. My son loves it, who is in bilingual class!!! While, it's too far for the people living outside of Db.

    Love to know your boy loves it. do they learn by play or learn as big kids? I am thinking of international session actually. do they do drama etc? a lot of music?

    They have free play time, circle time, art/craft time... While they do learn letters numbers Chinese characters etc. Obviously they sing lots of songs which my son sings to me everyday. And the good thing( I think) is that DMK has a clear academic schedule and they really follow it, which I can tell by talking to my son. For him, a 3.5yo boy, the only thing he cares is playing. Since he loves DMK, so I think he has really fun time there.
