    Struggling with choice of PN

    Woodland, Tutortime, Rightmind and Yew Chung - which one stands a greater chance of feeding my son to ISF and other billingual international schools?

    Probably Yew Chung as the first two are more English based. I have a friend who's daughter studied in RMK. She was waitlist in CIS only but got into SIS (but they chose CDNIS in the end). The family speaks mainly English and Mandarin.

    My boy just got into CDNIS reception, and it was a struggle of choice between IMS & CDNIS. (he also has ICS & ESF as options but we prefer the first two listed above).

    Personally I believe in the Montessori system so my son was in DMS (Discovery Montessori School) from age 1 until now (that he's moving into CDNIS). Bilingual is not our prime requirement but DMS & IMS are both bilingual KG with pre-nursery/ Playgroup.

    Given your prime target is bilingual IS, would you consider other bilingual PN such as Victoria & Kingston? If RMK is one of your choice, then I think you may not like Montessori (they are two ends of the spectrum), but do take a look at the education philosophy behind it, which IMHO is very beneficial for a child in the long run.
