Hi there,

How old are your kids? Where are you relocating from.

I suggest starting your research by reading our Education and Schools in Beijing page.

Just let me know any other specific questions you have.

Regards,

You should know that probably won't be enrolling your kids in a local school. Unless your kids are fluent in Mandarin Chinese, you won't be enrolling your kids in the local schooling system. As with all of mainland China, the local school system in Beijing doesn't really cater to students who don't speak the local language. Fortunately there are a fair few international schools in Beijing you can enrol your children into, but the waiting lists to get in can be quite extensive. With this in mind, there's no point which is too early get your kids on the waiting list, which is usually around 6 months at a minimum. You can ask your questions at Beijing@santaferelo.com
