Oh then you'll have better chance to get a seat!  I want to call & ask abacus about my status but better hold off as they expressly asked the parents not to call...

no need to get nervous.
1. Quite a number of parents not accepting ESF kinder offer after the school tour;
There will be 2nd, 3rd,....rounds.
2. SW will be moving to Hillside, more places.

I could not exactly know what other parents thought. From my experiences attending school tours (2 times), not all parents felt comfortable with ESF kinder philosophy;
1. Open Class-room;
2. Learn thro' play;
3. No 100% guarantee for ESF P1 place;
4. Less academic (of course, due to point 2)
5. No intensive Putonghua programme...
(thousands reasons omitted)
They were the questions that many parents did concern and some of them will decide to give up when they have a better option fulfilling their needs.

My son applied TY ESF. Just received the letter fr play visit. It's said that "Contracts will be issued on the next day of the play visit to successful applicants".  

My daughter also studied TY ESF before. I remember that they've sent the offer letter to her before, not like now (Need pass the play visit). May be they change the admission procedure.

Did any parents have experience about the play visit?   Have any children didn't got a seat after play visit?

Sounds interesting. No such arrangement last year. (Sent u a letter of school visit and asked you to sign the contract within 1/2 weeks).
New management(principal) New style?
Are they going to pre-screen the K1 applicants thro' the play visit???

When will be the play visit?

Does it mean that even you attend the play visit but you may not get the offer?

So it should not be a play visit but a screening

Play visit day on 18 Jan

The letter said
Your child will be invited to take part in informal play activities with a small group of children of the same age.  It will be conducted by experienced teaching staff and the whole process should take no longer than 30 minutes......
Following the play visit we may be in a position to offer your child a place in K1 for August 2010. Contracts will be issued on the next day of the play visit to SUCCESSFUL applicants.  
Should we have any concerns about your child's needs and ability to access our curriculum, we may ask you to return for a further visit and meeting with the Principal.

That means has assessment.

"visits are being conduted throughout jan and we will inform you of the outcome of the visit by letter or email before the 2nd week in feb. contracts will be issued at this point to successful applicants...."

Hi, bb_mummy,

Does the letter mentioned those things just as those in TY?  (informal activities, 30min, ......)?

I applied for WKS also but I don't know whether I have received the letter because I am still in my office.

hi linachoy,

yes, it mentioned the same thing:

"informal 'play' activities with a small group of children of the same age...."

dont understand why other esf kinder can get the result right after the next day of the 'informal visit' while wks need to wait for a mth!!

In fact, other ESFs do have more applicants than WKS (WKS has 2XX, Abacus has 4XX from the previous posts)  Why WKS needs to screen the applicants throughout Jan but TY only need one day and release the results in the next day?
