There're no problems to choose a kindergarten in Thailand as there's a plenty of them. The choice is huge and presented by municipal institutions, private, international. Private kindergartens can be either Thai or foreign (leisure and education of children is organized according to the system of another country, the staff are foreigners).
Children are accepted on kindergarten from 2 years old, kids up to this age can be sent to a private nursery.
A feature of Thailand's pre-school education is its unlimited diversity and loyalty: this applies both for the curriculum and the schedule of visits. For state kindergartens there is a system of requirements from the ministry, but each institution independently builds a program and classes. There is also no strict schedule of visits: parents can bring and pick up their child at any time, and not necessarily all days of the week.
In private kindergartens, more attention is paid to classes: in some institutions, kids get acquainted with English, learn to write and read. The cost of studying is from 6000 ฿ per month.
Programs of international kindergartens are most often built according to the British system, a lot of time is devoted to studying English. Such kindergartens cost more - about 10,000 ฿ per month.
