    Need help in choosing betn some pre-schools in TC

    Hey Everyone,
    I know this comparison has been made a couple of times before too....but the last thread with a similar subject was of 2011. Hence, asking this question again. We have recently arrived at HK and will be residing at Tung Chung. I have a 4yr old son and am looking for the most appropriate K2 class for him starting from September (infact will be glad to start from May if they accept). I have visited all the 3 schools in the vicinity viz. Sunshine House, Greenfield International and Dicovery Mind Kindergarten. By the look and cirriculum I found DMK the best - most structured and professional. Sunshine House has a big n good facility with a structured british cirriculum but there was something missing there...could be not enough kids to keep the school lively n bright (I visited on a friday afternoon). Greenfields International looks impressive in terms of their facilities and the number of students and teacher ratio. The kids looked to be happy but their daily schedule seemed a bit scattered/ spontaneous to me. Since K2 is an important level looking at the interview that kids have to go through to be enrolled in a good school later in grade 1, I would like to make the right decision for my child. Any experience with any of these schools would be of great help. Pls give your suggestions and advise. Thanks a heap!!

    DMK hands down. Academic wise they are Strong and on the plus side they have a primary school in DiscoBay, so the child has something to fall back on as primary school spots can be tight in HK.

    Thanks Jomama for your views. Me too found DMK to be the most structured one.
    However they do not have a place to accomodate him in May. Have put him on the waiting list for Sept 2014. Till then I guess will settle with Greenfields.
