It’s the season for open days and open houses in Singapore! Get all ready for the 2020 academic year by checking out schools around town for your little one… it’ll help with the decision-making process.
Choosing a school in Singapore for your little one is hard work! That’s why HoneyKids likes to offer up help and support where needed, whether it’s through our school selector, our bi-annual school fair, or our monthly round-up of school news and open days. Because really, how else are you going to narrow down your choice unless you take a campus tour or meet the teachers and faculty members? Check out all the schools news in Singapore for October below.
