You can enroll her in a kindergarten. She should start nursery at 3. It is nursery, k1, k2, similar to Indian Nursery, LKG and UKG.

There is a list of kindergartens both govt, private and also associated with religious institutions like Churches in Singapore run Kindergartens. They are pretty cheap at $250 a month, if you don't mind the influence of some Christianity preaching during the education.

If your child is on dependent pass then no need for student pass. Only long term social visit pass holders need to apply for student pass.

I recently learnt that my student pass has been rejected and I was wondering how I would go about filing an appeal. I am already in Singapore on a tourist visa.

Ask the institution who applied to help you out?

What are you studying and where?
