School Waiting List- What to do while we wait?

Post by Snowman1977 » Sun, 26 Apr 2020 6:23 pm

Hi all,

I am moving back to Singapore later this year with my family and we are looking to get our son in to Dover Court International School. They have advised us that we are unliley to get our son in for reception year this August, as they are fully subscribed with a long waiting list, but very likely to get in for year 1 the following August if we join the waiting list now.

With that in mind we are looking for advice on where to send our son for the year while we wait for his place in year 1? We are considering an early years education centre, has anyone gone down a similar route?

Another option would be to find a different International school (we are looking for British style) with a shorter waiting list if anyone can recommend one?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Some additonal detials- My wife is Singaporean and my son and I have British passports.

International Community School has places. It's close to Clementi/West Coast Road and cheaper than Dover. MY wife teachers there. They do K to 12 grades.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
