    Both of my kid went to Zebedee English playgroup in Taipo they both at Zebedee International preschool & Nursery now my daughter at Nursery and and my son at K2. if you like you may check out this playgroup near Taipo market station I think it’s very good school.

    Hi Annie,
    Thank you,
    Zebedee just 5 mins walk from my parents’ home, I am planning to join their playgroup when my girl turn to 1.8 mths.
    May I have few more questions about this Zebedee school.
    I know this school is British styles teaching school, but do they also teach anything in Cantonese?
    Any Chinese writing or homework etc?
    Are you planning send your son to International school after K3 or apply any local school or Direct Subsidy Scheme in HK?

    Thanks,
    Cathy

    Hi Cathy,
    They did not have teach in Cantonese/ Chinese writing/ homework. only English and Mandarin language one/ twice a week at the K1, K2 & K3, my son at K2 now and he will go to International school for year 1 next year & we're already apply at ESF Junior school in Shatin last month, my kids didn't speak Cantonese only English so we will not go to local school. No problem I'm happy to help.

    Hi Annie Mac,
    Thank you, very useful information.
    I would love my kid learning in English environment, at least she wont be afraid of speaking other language.
    But probably not planning to send her to International school (as is kind of high cost for us, especially most of it need to buy debenture)
    But I will try their N class first and see if this is suitable for her or not.
