Jevon is growing fast. Now almost 7.5 months and 8kgs, he is noticing more and more. We want him to interact with other kids and at some point he’ll be in a playgroup. Ika tends to pander to him 24/7 and we noticed he is a bit shy with other people. The sooner he is in pre-school the better.
After that we have to decide where to put him. My friend who had a 7 year old daughter told me that in the Balinese school the kids will be friendly, but after Jevon tells the kids what he gets away with and they tell their parents, the parents will say ‘stay away from that bule kid’. It happens to everyone. In the end campur (mixed) kids end up befriending each other.
The Balinese schools look pretty basic to me and the International schools turn the kids into little snobs. My friend recommended the Catholic school. I can’t remember where it is but it close to Kuta, Tuban maybe.
Here are some of the schools in the Kuta / Sanur / Seminyak area.
