There is no shortage of Kindergartens (Tadika) in Kuching. It seems like every corner has one;) These are not as regulated by Government Departments so it is important to choose one that you think fits your needs and your child’s needs best.
Kindergartens in Malaysia take children from the year they turn 4 to the year they turn 7. They teach numeracy and literacy and are quite academic.
The two International schools – Lodge International School, and Tunku Putra Internation School (see schools sections) have Kindergartens. Of the two, Tunku Putra is more like what you would expect of an International school.
Of the local kindergartens Christa at Stutong is one that I have heard very good things about. It was recently named the top kindergarten in the whole of Malaysia by the Education Ministry.
