I want to get my twins to go to ICS.  Would appreciate if soemone could advise me the following:
1. I assume attending their kindergarten will yield greater chance of admission to Grade 1.  But do other kindergartens also have high chances of getting in?  And what are they?
2. How about playgroup for the preparation to ICS kindergarten?  Any recommendations?

Thanks a million as I just started researching!

1. I assume attending their kindergarten will yield greater chance of admission to Grade 1.  But do other kindergartens also have high chances of getting in?  And what are they?Yes, if you aim at ICS primary, it's wise to let your child to go to ICS kinder. Each year ICS only take a few kids (should be less than 10 from oither kinder to P1)

2. How about playgroup for the preparation to ICS kindergarten?  Any recommendations?
Kids that can communicate well in English will be easier to enter ICS kinder. Therefore playgroup that allow kids to listen and speak English with native speaker will be good to prepare kids to have better English skills.

It's OK. My girl is studying in ICS elementary now. It's really a very good school. I think which playgroup is not a matter. Any good one is Ok. She went to gymboree and Alison Letterland when she was small. I know many ICS kids went to Tutor time before going to ICS kinder.

I think the key to get into any international schools (kindy and P.1) is proficiency in English, and the kid is out spoken.  I would never 'prep' a toddler for school interviews, cos it would only create pressure on the kid.

My son got admitted by ICS (many years ago) and other international schools because he can understand and communicate in English, and he did not cry and he did speak up. That's all.

I appreciate the fact that international schools do not have model answers for interviews. During the ICS interview, my son even said "why you asked so many questions? I am very tired". This might be a fatal answer in local school interviews, but when i heard the teacher telling me this conversation with a smile on her face, I knew my son had passed the interview.
