hi everyone, me and my wife plus two little ones 1 & 5 have been planning our move to spain (bigastro) for a couple of years now waiting for planning permission etc. we have finally sold our house and were ready to go then.... we discovered my were expecting another baby due in march 08. we were scheduled to move in december and need help,advice in whether 1,to go now and have the baby in spain? 2,sell now rent in england come over after baby born? our prefered choice would to be to go now but we are unsure wether we can have the baby on the health system in spain or we have to go private (what kind of costs involved) we have looked at various websites etc and seem to get conflicting results. also would my eldest son be able to join a local school in jan? thank you for taking the time to read our dilemma and if you or someone you know has had a similar experience we look forward to hearing from you darren & rebecca
Hi everyone on this lovely helpful forum, As well as investigating state schooling options I do want to look into some paying options too... I am interested in finding out a bit more about XIC, does anyone have any experience of this school (esp primary) as a parent, neighbour, ex student etc etc? Or just local knowledge? thanks in advance! Cazz xx
Hi all, I notice that a vaccination certificate seems to be one of the many bits of paper required when getting a child into state school in Spain? Specifically would having opted out of MMR vaccination be a problem, does anyone know? We have the infant ones (DTP etc), Many thanks if anyone can clarify this for me, Cazz x
dont think i posted my last message right, so here goes again. we are finally taking the plunge and moving out full time from march 08, will be staying for christmas and new year 07/08 for six weeks but would like something more permanent from mid march long term rental wise ( 2ADS 2 KIDS) also if you have a business to sell you have a captive audience. p.s do the secret garden still have their quiz on a thursday night and do graham and debbie still have tipsy's. accommodation we are looking for anywhere from los locos to la mata plz cheers robbie robbie.
What an excellent idea, parents will be able to register their details with the red cross and each child will be handed a bracelet with a personal identification number. If the child gets lost then the parents or carer willbe phoned by the beach staff. Murf
Hi, I have recently found out that I am having a baby. As I am moving to the Benidorm area in the next few weeks and probably won't be going back to the UK for at least a year or 2 I would like to know if there any shops like Mothercare where I can buy maternety clothes - or should I buy them here in England before I leave. I feel a bit stupid going to buy these types of clothes at the moment as I haven't even got a serious "bump"!Mari
