    Apply as many schools as you can. There are many good schools out there.

    Yes, just submit an application form with $500 (for last year). Meanwhile, you should do some research on other schools (both through-train schools and kindergartens). Depending on your budgets and requirements, some of the good ones are CIS, GSIS, Canadian IS, ESF and Sinagpore IS.

    hi hkmomof2

    my son has just turned 2 years old and we had our KCIS interview yesterday. firstly, just fyi, the waiting list cannot be as long as people think, I only applied very recently (it had slipped my mind to apply), so dont worry about how ''late' 'you may be now, if they like what you write on the form, they will interview you.

    for some bizarre reason, i never liked the sounds of the school, but since application is only 500 bucks, i applied anyway. we went yesterday, i totally liked it. the school ground isnt fancy (in fact rather old, but then kid has been going to Highgate, so i think it's unfair to compare, since HG is breathtakingly beautiful) and location is very inconvenient. classrooms were very warmly decorated and not cramped. teachers seemed very kind and helpful and surprisingly my kid seemed to like the place (we went for an interview at victoria a few weeks back and he went berseck as he instantenously hated the campus and people there)

    anyway, i believe our kids are about the same age, and i spent quite a bit of time on applications/ school research lately. my mentality is to find a place for him to be happy and learn about life/ being a good person rather than excelling academically (i, myself, excelled academically, but have been stuck in this horrible banking job since graduation; so i dont place much emphasis on academic achievement); if you are of the same mentality, do PM me and I can share with you more of my findings.

    Hi laminkins, my son just turned 2 this month as well, and I'm going berserk over the whole school application song and dance, and have been applying for schools left right and centre. KCIS, however, is not one of the schools I applied for, probably because of its odd name as well. Maybe I should quickly fill in their application...?

    I agree that academics should not be the emphasis at this young an age. There are so many more important attributes they need to develop at this golden period. That put choosing a good school all the more difficult; how to balance a good Kindie program with the school's future prospects etc. I'd love to hear your sharings. Feel free to PM me :)
