ENROLMENT

Q1: How do I enroll my child into Nanyang Kindergarten?

A:
Parents have to come to Nanyang Kindergarten personally to place their child on the Wait List. They are required to bring the child's birth certificate together with a S$100 in either cash or cheque. We will place the child in the Wait List according to the priority phase.

The Priority phase will be given to the following:

Phase 1: Siblings of children currently studying in NYK
Phase 2: Siblings of ex-students of NYK
Phase 3: Children of ex-students (Parents) of Nanyang Kindergarten - Upon graduation from Nanyang Kindergarten
Phase 4A: Parents who are Nanyang Alumni

The remaining vacancy will then be given to the children in the Wait List based on first-come first-served basis.

Any child who is not a Singaporean needs to have a valid student pass to study in Singapore. With a confirmation letter or document from the principal of the Nanyang Kindergarten, you can apply to the Immigration Department for a student pass to enable your child to stay and study in Singapore. Exemption from student pass is given to a child who is on a valid dependent pass because his/her parent is working in Singapore.
