Hi! I'm new to this forum. But am just wondering if anyone knows of any daycare/ crèche facilities in the Central Algarve area? My Son will turn 2 in May, so is to young to go to the state nursery. Really would like to introduce him to the language and also to meet other children. Even if its for couple of hours a week, would be good! If anybody has any info that would be great! Thanks in advance.

One of our resolutions for 2008 was to arrange to do more as a family. My wife and I are taking it in turns to organise outings. As usual I haven't got round to it quite yet and the proposed February family fun day is approaching so I am appealing to you for some guidance. What could we do/see as a family in February?

not a major problem so I do not think a trip to the Doctors is needed. Just want to make sure it does not worsen. I have used petroleum jelly, can any parents out there advise please.

I have heard there is a very good nursery in Portimao. I don't know what it is called, but apparently it does food diaries and things like that, which is what my little fella needs as he doesn't eat very well. Does anyone have any information to pass onto me?

Thinking about my three year old and Christmas has made me wonder about the Christmas traditions in Portugal. Is santa the same here as in the UK? Do they do stockings? Are there any other interesting Christmas traditions?
