Many parents have said they love Eton House but I am not sure why as the only good points are: they have holiday classes, school buses are available for children who attend after school activities. Having had 4 children attend two different International Schools, I can safely say that Eton House is...

rest assured that unlike how he hits me when I don't hold my violin right, he won't dare to hit your child in front of you
That in itself is a warning of this so-called teacher's methods...one to avoid not recommend.

Hi PaulynY, I can confirm that if you and your children are on DPs you are entitled to enrol for both international or local schools in Singapore, without applying for a student pass. This is because you can only hold one type of visa, eg. either a DP or a Student's pass. I have 4 children all atten...

Bluenose, thank you for that.
Trying to find a reasonably good piano teacher for around $150 to $180 per month, has been challenging.

If anyone else has recommendations, I would be pleased to hear from you. Thanks.
