I tried to post this question/topic before and maybe I messed something up, so here we go again.
What schooling options exist in Zhongshan for kids with foreign passports? I know there are KaiYin and CHES international schools. Are there any exclusively foreign passport private schools? The closest I found was QSI but they are in Zhuhai and too far away for my family to access. Also, anybody know of any homeschool groups/co-ops in Zhongshan? Anyone interested in starting one?
My family and I are new to the area and have very little knowledge other than what we can find online. Any and all input is appreciated.
I think what you found is the closest possible to what you are looking for. There are international schools such as American School in the mega cities like Shanghai,but not here in Zhongshan. Consider the size of Zhongshan, what is available is already better than other like-sized cities.
Don't know how old your children are. Though the school system at home is good, it is not too bad of an idea for your kids to learn Chinese here.
Hi Nikki, Our son is only 3, but we have some major pressure from our Chinese family to get him enrolled in a school.
Oh I see! Three is a lovely age, just over the terrible two period and still very innocent. :) Oh yes, though 3 is a common age to get into a preschool, many parents in China have their kids start as early as a little before 2. And this is why your Chinese family is giving you pressure on this issue. For your son, it all depends on you and your wife. Work it out among yourselves first, then have your wife communicate nicely to her parents. It will easier to get support this way.
