The October issue is hot off the press and this month’s education feature is crammed with information all Beijing parents should have. Are you considering a bi- (or even tri-) lingual education for your child? Are you concerned about finding a school that’s the right fit for your family? What about local schools? We spoke with parents, educators and schools about their experiences and to find out more about learning options for your little ones.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Dr. Stephanie Teoh reveals her tricks for getting baby sleep, Dinah Chong Watkins speaks with teens about the notorious Sanlitun bar street, and Dr. Richard Saint Cyr gives us the lowdown on this year’s flu shot.
If it’s fun you’re seeking, put on your dancing shoes as Kara Chin takes you on a tour of J-Ballet studio, get the winter coats out and explore Ritan Park in the heart of the CBD, or pack your bags and head off on a family trip to The School House at Mutianyu.
As the temperature drops, why not warm up with a bowl of Xiyun Yang’s deliciously sweet pumpkin congee? Or try chef Geoffrey Wedcks’ baby puree recipes. If eating out is more your style, we review Haru Teppanyaki and Sushi Bar in Shunyi, and unearth the Top 5 Places to eat eggplant (or aubergine, for the Europeans among us).
See what our regular columnists are writing about this month. Olivia Lee tells us why fat is good for the brain. Beijing Baba Martin Adams ponders the age-old question of "Am I pushing too hard to achieve?", and we welcome new columnist Jennifer Ambrose to the beijingkids fold with her debut column Alternate Routes.
As always, find kid-friendly events, search our Directories for anything and everything you’ll need in Beijing, and read about other families’ travel destinations.
