    Local Mandarin Kindegarten apart from Kiang su

    Does anyone know of any schools apart from KCS? I am very keen to send my girl to Mandarin based or bilingual.
    Ideally, I would be prefer

    1) 70% Mandarin, 30% English
    2) 50% Mandarin, 50% English
    3) 70% English 30% Mandarin
    4) 100% Mandarin

    I dont mind if it is a well mixed of Mandarin + English + Cantonse, but NOT
    80% cantnose
    10% English
    10% Mandarin

    Any comments and feedbacks are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    SIS has PY1 & PY2 classes
    ISF has Foundation year
    Victoria Shanghai Academy does Trilingual
    YewChung does Bilingual
    KCS

    Apart from the above, there is also a whole slew of learning center/nursery type places. A good list is here:

    Thank you for the info & reference. These schools are expensive. Guess KCS fits the bill better. :-D

    KCS is a Mandarin immersion school with very little English
    KCIS is an English school with a fair amount of Mandarin.

    Which one you choose will depend on your plans and desires for your child.
    I put 3 kids thru KCS and one of them has now transferred over to KCIS. I still have 1 child in KCS.
