Agree, just find a school you like. We see a lot of kids coming and going mid school year ( jan). Having three kids, you might have trouble getting them all in at the same time at one of the more popular schools. Good luck.
IB is good but you really do need good teachers.....

Hong Kong with 3yr and 20 mos

Hi,

Looking for tips on places to stay in Hong Kong for a 4 night trip with a 3 yr old and 20 month old. Looking for suite (separate living area so mom and dad don't have to go to bed at 7.30!) or a reasonably priced hotel with adjoining rooms.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

7k is a good estimate for hospital costs (not including ob/gyn) regular visits... cost is worth it. I am an expat and had two there... and no issues whatsoever (except rooms look old) Staff great and lactation consult great too. You should look into getting insurance to cover any emergencies though ...

you should contact the main post office in Singapore. I had mail incorrectly addressed and they kept it there and I tracked it down. They can be very helpful. Good Luck
