Hi. We are considering moving to Spain perminently within the next year or so. At the moment we receive Child Benefit for our 2 daughters, aged 3 & 4, and claim Child Tax Credits, due to our low income. Can anyone who is in a similar position please tell me what benefits would be available should we be unable to find work or any other income when living in Spain. How does it compare to UK benefits and is it straight forward to complete the claim procedure ? We have looked at all of the advice web sites that deal with this subject but the information is very sketchy and there is no mention of what the maximum income is to qualify, nor is there any mention of amounts available. Thanks a lot in advance for any help and/or advice that may be given. Regards and Best Wishes for 2016. Rob

Hello, I am an Irish lady, retired ,and living in Estepona. I have a Diploma in Childcare and 14 years experience caring for young children. I would be very interested to know if there is an Organisation in Estepona where I could volunteer my help to care for children,perhaps helping the children with their English. A school in Fuengirola had a program whereby English speaking volunteers went to the school on two days a week and the program was a great success. Perhaps someone know of similar programs in Estepona ?

We are hoping to move to the area around Alhaurin el Grande soon.  We have a 12 year old daughter who has never learned Spanish so need to find a good academic English speaking school.  I have been told about Sunland School but we were also wondering about St Anthonys College in Mijas Costa.  Does anyone know either of these schools and opinions on their teaching and success rates etc?  Are there any others which are within a reasonable driving distance?  I would appreciate any information.  Thanks

Can anyone tell me where I can get a good price on one of those tiny, 3-sided cribs that set right up against the bed for newborns? the ones I've seen advertised are incredibly expensive. A used one would be great or maybe a reference to a carpenter? thanks! suzanne

We have an urgent question. We will probably move to the Alhaurin El Grande area shortly and we need to gather information about the schools.  Can anyone recommend a good international school for our eight year old daughter?
