International elementary schools Beirut and things

Hi, we are moving to Lebanon in July and are looking for preschool for our kids. They are 4 and 5 years old so would end up in KG 1 and 2. We have been in touch with few international schools but they seem way to expensive and not flexible for our needs (i.e. insisting to bring kids on certain date fro interview as if we live in Beirut already). It looks like we will not be living in Beirut but Mansourieh where my wife office is based. Does anybody have children in school in that area? They told us that two schools Eastwood College and Saegesse High School are based there. Any general advice on the school selection would be helpful.

Secondly would be good to know what activities are generally available for kids (international kids that do not speak French or Arabic yet) exist in town.
Thanks a lot
