Please respond if you know which American or IB curriculum schools have places open for Grade 6. A friend of the family is asking and I don't know as mine are younger than that. Thanks for any leads.I'm thinking the schools with openings are probably the newer schools, right? This is the list I came up with:Collegiate American SchoolAmerican School of Dubai (maybe since they expanded?)Jumeirah Baccalaureate SchoolUptown School (new campus?)GEMS Wellington Academy DSOAm I missing any?
My daughter will turn 4 this year and we are looking to put her in kindergarten starting September 2012. Can anyone recommend a good elementary school in Mirdif area? We may move there over the Summer but one of the issues would be finding a school first. We prefer a smallish school if possible? A neighbor mentioned Star International School as having a good reputation with a low teacher to pupil ratio. Any others?
I used to go to a breastfeeding support group but lost their information. Is there a group that meets in the Marina or JBR area? I have been BFing but have recently felt like my supply isn't enough. My son's weight gain is fine but I just feel like it's not working as well. Maybe talking to some other BFing mums would help.

We are planning a last minute trip just before Spring break for a couple of days. We had planned on taking a proper weeklong vacation but plans were thwarted by unexpected work conflicts. So frustratng.Any ideas where we should take the kids for a getaway? We will only have 3 days and 2 nights so I think flying anywhere is out of the question.
Can anyone recommend a camp for my 10 year old son to attend over Spring break? We've done Active Sports before but wanted to try something different this time around. Nothing specifically against them, just want to try something else. Somewhere in Festival City/Mirdif area or near a Metro stop is good. Thanks!
Hello. I'm curious to hear what languages your children speak? How are you able to keep them up with their native language if it isn't English. I am married to a French Canadian and our 2 children speak a bit of French. Since becoming expats they won't get gram and paps speaking French to them and I speak well enough to converse but not teach them.Any tips from French speaking mommies out there?
