|Find international school in Hainan|
|Jul 2, 2007 10:28|
|Our family prepares to move to hainan due to the work of my husband. We have 3 children of 2, 4 and 6 years old. So far, I haven't found an International (English speaking) school at the Island. Does anyone know if there is one? |

I doubt that there is one there. Haikou would be the most likely spot if any. Wait and see what the locals say but if you have done a comprehensive search and found nothing then that is probably the case.
You may be able to get your youngest two into a Chinese Kindergarten that has English lessons (I currently teach in one of those but they are usually only in the larger cities. We have a two year old from Australia who comes in the mornings and one full day each week and he is coping very well) and they will quickly learn Chinese.
Your oldest one may have to be home schooled which is not such a bad thing if you have the time.
Sorry we can't be of more help. I'll see if I can find you a web site for an interesting school in Haikou that you may be able to contact for more information if nothing else.
Where will you be living?? You'll love it there. It's a great island.

Here is the school I think you may get some good advice from even if they can't take your children. They are in Haikou
Have a look at the site and give them a call and see what they know.
All the best
I came across a blog by a family who have been living on the island since 1993 but I couldn't open the page. You may have better luck. I just googled 'learning Mandarin in Haikou'

|thanks for your info! I'll check it out. We don't know where we are going to live yet. My husband has to start a business at Hainan and has not yet decided where. In a few weeks we'll visit the island for the first time. So that will be exciting.|

|Since november 2007 we live in Shenzhen instaed of Hainan. The children go to an international school here, so I am lucky that the children have many kids to play with and I don't have to teach the children myself. I heard people were planning upon stating an international school in Hainan, but maybe it got stuck at the plans....|
