Admission for 4+ year old 2017/2018 with mandarin exposure

Hi. I will be moving to Dubai from Singapore  with my son (born Nov 2012) and would prefer him to be in the British curriculum. He is currently in kindergarten 1 in Singapore.  If I were to start him in the new academic year 2017/2018, which level will he be enrolled in?
As we’ll be relocating back go Singapore after a few years, he needs to exposed to Mandarin while studying in Dubai. Any recommendations for schools and/or language centers are welcomed. Thanks!

Dear Lunar

Your son would enter FS2 in September 2017.  There are a number of schools offering Mandarin either as part of the language curriculum or as an after school activity although this often does not start until year 1 or above.  Safa Community School and Nord Anglia among those that offer Mandarin as part of the curriculum.   The Dubai Chinese Learning Center – – will be able to help you further.
