How do foreign toddlers and young children get educated in Shanghai?
(11.22.2007)

There are two educational choices available for foreign toddlers and young children whose parents wish to educate them in Shanghai:

(1) they can study in one of the local public or private-sponsored kindergartens, primary or middle schools. Applications for these schools can be submitted to the district/county level education bureau; or

(2) they can study in schools for children of expatriates in Shanghai (often known as "International Schools"). Applications for these schools can be addressed directly to the school. (For a detailed list of International Schools in Shanghai, please visit the education page of www.online.sh.cn).
