    Pre-Schools in Sai Kung

    Hi
    We are looking to send our son to pre-school in Sai Kung in the coming year. Our options are probably Skip v Leapfrog. People seem to have very strong opinions for / against each option. Any thoughts / experiences / preferences?
    We are working parents so he will mostly attend with the helper, though we are happy to be involved 1-2 / month if possible.
    Thanks in advance.

    Do you prefer local school or international school?

    We recently visited Sunshine house (Clearwater Bay campus).

    See if the information is useful.

    My daughter goes to the playgroup and SKIP and loves it. I don't have any experience with Leapfrog, but I hear mostly positive things about it. I think the biggest down side to both SKIP and Leapfrog is that they're not super easy to get to - though not ridiculously difficult.

    SKIP offers both parent-only playgroup sessions and parent or helper sessions & you can choose your preference - that being said, if parents can't attend the parent only session, they won't turn you away if your kid turns up with your helper. Class sizes are fairly small, and there is often a waiting list.

    hope that helps a bit
