We're considering moving to Shanghai next year (my husband's been offered a position there), and would probably be staying there for 4 years.
We live in Germany now, our kids (3 1/2 and 15 months) speak English and German fluently (well, the baby doesn't really speak anything!). Our older son is attending a wonderful pre-school here (a Waldkindergarten with Montessori influences).
Any recommendations for pre-schools? I know there are a few international schools in Shanghai. How about the "local" schools?
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment and would appreciate any responses....

- international pre-school is too expensive
- international ones only speak English and we want her to continue to be bilingual (she speaks fluent Chinese and English)
- Kid Castle is only 2.5 km from where we live and it has school bus picking her up from our front door everyday
If you are in Luwan district (Pu Xi), want a local pre-school, and want your kid to learn Chinese, I would recommend Kid Castle. However, Kid Castle still only teaches "school English" so you need to do something at home to keep their English and German up.

We are a newly established kindergarten at the Min Hang/Songjiang area, if that is where your husband will be working at. just off the exit of Xin Qiao A8 hightway. We offer both English and Chinese curriculum, and also the Montessori program, and we have kids from countries like German, France, USA, China, Taiwan. We are a very small and unique school that is differnt from most of the big international kindergarten. If this is the area where you and your husband will be living and working....come and visit us !!
