London nursery teaching 3-year-old children Mandarin to give them 'lifelong advantage for global future'

Children who become bilingual in Mandarin and English from nursery school age will have a lifelong advantage over their peers, according to the head of a Europe’s first “completely immersive” Chinese-English primary. Jo Wallace, former head of Putney High Junior School, said Kensington Wade - launched this September for a roster of international pupils - offers the best way for Londoners to equip their children as businesspeople and “global citizens” of the future. Ms Wallace insisted the £17,000-a-year school, which teaches half its lessons in Chinese and the other half in English, is “the opposite of a stressed-out environment”.

Small children to see the Queen's Horse Guards in London? Is it safe or advisable to take my 3 year old daughter to see the Queen's Horse Guards? I can't remember whether the horse often standing out front is a friendly horse that can be touched, or whether it is a mean old police horse who will bite. My daughter has fun feeding handfuls of grass to nice horses and I would only consider this destination worth it if it were advisable to try to pet the horse's snout. A quick google search did not turn up usable details for me.
