A progressive "Chinese" preschool

I remember when I was a little kid and the rage in school products then were pencil cases with multiple compartments and box type school bags with wheels. Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars and the other Sanrio characters makes a little girl feel "in", while little boys prefer Voltes V, star rangers and the like.

Now, we've evolved to simpler pencil cases and wheeled backpacks, and while little girls (and their mothers too!), again, go gaga over Hello Kitty, little boys now go for Ben10, Spider-man, Thomas the train, and Cars.

What hasn't changed is the desire for parents for their kids to have a good education. 

It's because of this that I didn't turn down an invitation to join other mommy bloggers in a unique progressive Chinese small school in New Manila.  While I've been happy with my son's previous small school and now, his big school, I am still looking for other options because I'd like my children to learn Chinese.  I'm looking for options for my little girl's small schooling next year.  As for my preschool boy, he's now in a non-Chinese school but I'd still like him to study Chinese.

Will talk more about the school in a while.  Stay tuned.
