Hi there, first time poster so apologies in advance for any mistakes! I am wondering if anyone has any experience or info regarding fostering a child? I have lived in Albufeira for over 11 years, have my own home, divorced with no kids (OMG... sounds like a personal ad!!) I do not know where to start looking for advice or info but would love to think I could help in some way although as I am in full time employment this may go against me. Was thinking of weekends where I could give time to a child in need. Any info would be gratefully received. Many thanks

HI there Can anyone advise me on the school in Monchique? We are moving to the Monchique area in October and my little girl will be 3. I need to put her into a school so that I can work, and wondered if anyone could offer me any advice. I really don't want to put her somewhere that's not good, but at the same time, paying for a private school to start with is unfortunately not an option I have. I will be coming down to look for somewhere to live between the 2nd and 10th July so any information anyone can give me before then would be great. My email address is sallyfryer@ymail.com Big thank-you! Sally

our kids always seem to get a rash when we apply sunscreen. Is it just a case of cover up and keep in the shade or is there a special one that's good for the under 10s or younger?
