    My kid is 2 year old. Planning to start school. Found a nearby play group. But i heard we need to register in pcf now itself for next year for nursery1. Also we might go back to india so thinking to put her in international schools so that she dont suffer when we go back to india. Should i put her in nearby schools for nursery. Then international schools for k1? Can please guide. Please note we are in work pass. These n1, k1 are quite confusing terns to me ☺

    Hi Sweetygals,

    Welcome to SG. PAP schools are in general good. N1 N2 is basically prenursery and nursery. K1 K2 are LKG and UKG. I don't think it makes much difference if you put your child in international or local school during the pre-primary years, because what is taught is the same, not much difference in syllabus. Local school is be slightly cheaper than international ones, that's all.

    Hope this helps. All the best!

    Hi, very sorry for the late reply. Usually the international schools here give admissions in Dec/ Jan for kids who did not get into to local schools.
