    Red face Recommended nurseries in sai Kung?

    Hi,
    Just wondered if any one can recommend a nursery in Sai Kung for my 2 year old. I' m looking for somewhere he could go for 2/3 mornings a week. The only one I've heard of is Woodlands. I would really like a play based curriculum, like the foundation curriculum in the uk (I know Woodlands does this) but doesn't have to be Uk based, mainly a caring, (English speaking) environment.
    Thanks :)

    Woodlands, SKIP, Leapfrog, Abacus (Clearwater Bay), New Song, Garden House (Clearwater Bay)

    If you might be interested (next year) in trying a local kindergarten, there are many expats who send their kids (myself included) to Sai Kung Lok Yuk Kindergarten. With the gov't pre-primary voucher, the 1/2 day programme was free this year!

    Great, thanks for that. My son is now 2 so just wanted him to go for a couple of mornings a week and I assume someone has to go with them at that age. Does the local kindly you mentioned only do classes from the age of 3 or are there classes for younger kids? Also how do u go about getting the pre- primary vouchers you mentioned? Thanks again, I will start looking!

    Thanks, that's really helpful info. I think we like the look of Leapfrog at the moment- so will go and visit. Might consider the local nursery next year. Thanks again :)
