We will be in Hong Kong for December / January with our kindergarten aged Son. He will go back to his Australian school next year.
Our son will need full day or half day child care (he's five turning six).
One parent will need to go to work every day, Hong Kong style.
Other parent needs to do work half days.
We have found two learning buildings full of small learning schools nearby and the various centres can do customized lessons.
Eg, Music centre can bring in tutors before 2/3pm (basically, before all the other school kids get out) and he can learn another instrument.
The english centre said they can run a group class and he may be the only child for the normal rate. Similar with Math class and art class. We can bring him in a few times a week.
SCAA / Harry Wright can organise a swim instructor twice weekdays for private lessons in the mornings, etc.
Prices start shooting up the more activities, but probably around the 16K pcm that international K3/P1 schools are charging.
We'd prefer two or three full days where we can leave him from 8am-4pm, on 8am-5pm (like we do back in Australia). Once a week I can work from home/hotel and walk and pick him and take him to the next lesson, in the local centres, etc. Just need to end meetings 5-10 early and start 5-10 after the hour. Wife can probably do the same.
I know that school holidays are very short in HK, so we can probably just take holidays and do unstructured 'fun' things ourselves during that time.
I know from the other thread the answer is helper.
Not sure if we can get a part time helper just to wait and take him to classes in the AM, bring him back for lunch, then take him out in the afternoons as well. Or find a school that will take him a few days a week.
He can do exercise books, drawing, etc. Main thing is getting his reading level up.
We will be living out of a hotel for the two months and then travelling back.
We're in the Eastern island side, can travel on island line /blue line okay.
Okay Kowloon side, but not so keen as the taxi/uber rates cost a bomb back/forth.
Didn't want to hijack the other thread, but there is a bit of overlap.
