    Hi San,

    The age eligibility for children in kidergarten is different here than back home dear. Here they have 4 yrs of kidergarten - pre nursery, nursery, k1, k2 starting at 2 yrs complete, while ours is 3 yrs of prekg, lkg, and ukg from 2.5 yrs. So the child will lose 1 yr. same for primary also, here it is 6 complete to enter P1, while ours is 5 yrs complete for 1st std.

    While prenursery and nursery is not mandatory the age limit is strictly followed in local schools. Indian schools have a similar age eligibility like in india. But if you are going back the next year, it is better to go for local school and put her in prenursery and take her back and put in UKG when you go back. Because the international schools are slightly expensive.

    You can enquire the indian schools or check the websites to see their age eligibility and fee structure and decide based on it.

    Re: Khalsa kindergarten

    Hi friends
    Now my son is Nursery and currently going to PAP. Iam happy with that but from January we are going to shift our house so planned to change his school. Is anyone sending their child to MFC( Montessori for children) , I saw that site and it's very good but want to know from parents about it and we didn't visit the school.
    How is Khalsa and Satya sai kindergarten ?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Couple of my friends go to Khalsa and Sathya Sai. Both have very good reputation. Sathyasai is good with lot of Indian kids. Khalsa I heard is good in preparing the kids for primary school. Sarada Kindergarten is also another good school. Many Indian kids go to these 3 schools.

    Hi,

    We just moved to singapore. I need some information on PAP schools:
    1. Do they have Hindi as Mother tongue/2nd Language?
    2. I'm here on Employment Pass. Is my child eligible to get admission into PAP school? Is PR mandatory to get admission into PAP?

    Let me know details. Appreciate your help!!

    :cheers
    Kamala
