My son is so lucky that he has already got the offer from ESF (WKS), but I have the same worry and concern like many other parents that how to catch up the level of Chinese language for my son.

請問esf kinder 需要interview 嗎? 以何準則收生呢?  母語需要是英文嗎? 謝謝


No need, but priority gave to those who are Native English Speakers family, and if you kid has foreign passport it is a PLUS too.

I know some parents will have their kids to study ESF in AM / PM, then find a local kinder for their kids to study in PM / AM so they can learn Chinese, vice versa.

But is it too much for a 3 yrs old kid? If your answer is Yes, then relax. Your kid is only 3 years old. Ask yourselves, what are you doing when you are only 3 years old? They actually need to sleep and play more!

其實比得佢讀IS, 唔可以希望佢中文好似local school學生咁. 決定左take esf, 我會開始同佢睇下中文書, 希望先develop左佢睇中文書嘅興趣先, 之後再慢慢step by step 教

Yes, and normally they don't allow you to change unless it is available, and normally it is very full and waiting list is very long. Don't mind about PM class, ESF Kinder is a very good kindergarten!

Hi Popolung,

Your info were very helpful indeed. Just 2 questions.
1/ When would we know the allocation of am/pm session?
2/ Can you share your opinion on ESF kinder since you mentioned that this is a very good kindergarten? Thank you so much.

1. Once you got admission notice you will know it is AM or PM

2. Depend on if you want your kid to learn a lot of academic stuff, or you want them to be happy. ESF has a very good English environment as most kids are native Eng speaker, so your kid Eng must be better than those in local kinder for sure. And their teaching style is more interactive so they will be more willing to go to school everyday. But some parents may comment that ESF may be too loose, then you may need to take a balance, and you have to give them extra support after school hour. Again they are only 3 years old kids.......

Thanks Popolung. In that case, we should know the session after completing the formalities so to speak.
Absolutely agree on pt. 2. Children need to enjoy their school life in parallel to learning.

Hi Mqchris,
I think they will give you two weeks to consider whether you want to take up the offer before paying any fee. That's the policy for ESF TY and I would assume it applies to all ESF Kindy.
