    kindergarten / nursery for 2.5 and 4.5 year old - where to go...

    hello :)
    we're a family from switzerland, moving to hong kong in summer 2015. so my first priority is the kindergarten for my two sons, 2.5 and 4.5 years old this summer.
    we're looking for an international kindergarten where they can go together (if not the same group at least the same building) and where they get lots of time to play without pressure...
    as we have not decided where to live we're pretty free. maybe discovery bay or repulse bay or somewhere else where there is not too much hectic and stress for the kids.
    any info hiiighly apreciated!
    :-) greetings!

    thank you giginium four your link and offer to help.

    as our boys love to cycle & play outside as much as possible we are thinking about looking for a flat in discovery bay.
    - any thoughts / info?
    - does anybody by chance know the montessori school in discovery bay?

    all the best

    I moved to Lohas Park. Good facilities, swimming pools, clubhouse and a nice park, and right on the MTR. Ferries always put me off DB but it does look nice whenever i go. More and more westerners in LP tho now.

    Hi Jmi,

    Welcome to HK....soon.

    I have just moved to Quarry Bay and looking at Pre-school for my 2 year-old son. I went to the Open Day of Hamilton Hill International mentioned in this thread and they seem pretty good. They are focused on learning through speech and drama, role play etc. Fun and stress-free with good teachers, sounds like suitable for your kids.

    Of course, like a lot of moms, I looked at lots of different pre-schools + kindie around the area, but my son went for a trial class at Hamilton Hill and loves it. He has always been a shy kid and we never expected him to behave so differently in that class, so we applied for him already, waiting for a reply now....hopefully he gets in.

    Let me know if you need some help.

    Mabel

    Thanks for the information.
    Can the expats who haven't moved to HK yet register their children in HK kindergarten in advance? I have heard that there are very long waiting lists and that all of the schools have entrance tests even for 1 year olds??
