User reviews of Daystar Academy 启明星双语学校
If you're looking for a school for your toddler look no further. Daystar academy is a place for your child to call home...away from home. My little one enjoys baking with her teacher so much that baking has become one of her favourite things....I really hope she can make her Daddy a chicken-masala-gatsby-cut-in-two one of these days.
The friendly staff makes her feel loved and appreciated. Although she's only in kindergarten we're looking forward to having our own tri-lingual taxi translator, as the school offers half day English and Chinese........ <daydreaming>Just think of the possibilities back in RSA; haggling with the SA chinese community for bargains.....
Ooh! and I heard that Daystar's elementary science teacher, who hails from RSA has been ranked as the best science teacher in Beijing 2014.
