More expats find it tough to get kids into local schools

Permanent residents (PRs) Sumalatha Videm and her husband Videm Nagender, who works in the IT sector here, have been living in Singapore with their daughter Videm Sree Vainavi for nearly seven years.

Now the family, whose income is about $6,000 each month, is thinking of leaving as the $1,100 they pay a month for Videm, who is on a long-term visit pass, to attend Global Indian International School is fairly costly. Last year, when Videm, seven, was ready for Primary 1, the family from India applied for a place at Marymount Convent School near their Toa Payoh home. They failed to secure a spot.

The red tapes are to protect the interest of local students.

What about art schools like this one http://muzart.com.sg/art-courses/foundation-art-class/ They have art classes for kids at different age.
