Dear momom.
Thank you for getting back to me - I have some more questions in my mind about STARTERS:

Could you tell me more about the "content" or the cirriculum of the Lower and Upper class?

i.e. What I want to know is :

"do they go thru (letterland/ jolly) phoincs in Lower class?"
"or when do they begin with the phonics? or actually no?
"do they have books taken back home and require they to read every day?"
"do Starters require the child to do in "show and tell" time?
"do they need to learning writing?"
"do they have any picnics and outings or other school activities apart from Christmas Concert?"
"Same activities in both lower and upper classes?
"You mention parents evening organised once in a term. Aparet form this, Are you welcomed to visit the school or to call up the school?"
"You told me there are different nationality in starters. I mean, is there high portion of chinese students ?"
"Would the chinese students speak chinese among themselves ? "
(Like my child 's native language is English but she can utter some cantonese words if somebody talks to her in canto - e.g. security in our flats, those granny and grandpa in the parks...but she doesnt understand what they say in canto)
"You mention +25 children in a class. How many teachers are there?"
"are all Lower kindergarten students sticking to Mrs Molton for the complete school year?"
"do you apply for ESF and the IS for the primary?"

Many THANKS!
Maria

"do they go thru (letterland/ jolly) phoincs in Lower class?" In upper class (certainly)
"or when do they begin with the phonics? or actually no?  not sure in lower class, you may call the school to confirm it
"do they have books taken back home and require they to read every day?" in upper class, one book on every friday
"do Starters require the child to do in "show and tell" time? Yes
"do they need to learning writing?" Yes
"do they have any picnics and outings or other school activities apart from Christmas Concert?"
"Same activities in both lower and upper classes?
"You mention parents evening organised once in a term. Aparet form this, Are you welcomed to visit the school or to call up the school?"  
outing, you can ask for a school visit before the enrollment and you are free to call up the school.  Actually, it is different to local school, they  will call you only if they have something re the child to tell or discuss to you.
"You told me there are different nationality in starters. I mean, is there high portion of chinese students ?" No
"Would the chinese students speak chinese among themselves ? " No, they all speak English in the school
(Like my child 's native language is English but she can utter some cantonese words if somebody talks to her in canto - e.g. security in our flats, those granny and grandpa in the parks...but she doesnt understand what they say in canto)
"You mention +25 children in a class. How many teachers are there?" One teacher and two assistants
"are all Lower kindergarten students sticking to Mrs Molton for the complete school year?"  I don't know
"do you apply for ESF and the IS for the primary?" yes

though starters is a small kinder, the child have a happy school time there,  hope these can help.

Dear momom.
I should say thank you for taking time to answer my questions.

It must be bothering.

I tell you that my family studied there (i.e. Starters School) however it had been long time ago. 11 years ago. Now in ESF KGV.

Apart from talking to the school, I want to hear the words from the parents who have child/ children there currently. I believe it must be most recent and convincing.

Thanks again.
Maria

Not sure about South Horizon, but at the last school visit, the school admininstor (Winnie) told us that school bus cover most of the place in HK Island. You can call and ask Winnie, I think she is willing to help !
