I am looking for an activity center that I can take my children to over the summer break. Ideally I want to enroll them in music or dance lessons at the same time so I am not going back and forth. Is there any place like that?

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.

I waited too long and now my son's school doesn't have spaces for his little brother next year. I really don't want to have them in separate schools. Which British schools have spaces still open for FS 1 in the fall?

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!

Any recommendations for a holiday camp during the spring holiday break? We planned on going for a trip to Oman but my husband has to work at the last minute. 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?

I have 2 wee ones and wondering which cinemas are child friendly? Back home they would run special showings with the volume a bit lower so as to not hurt their ears. Are there any cinemas in Dubai that do this as well?

Is there an Arabic version of Sesame Street? I've seen Dora the Explorer and other cartoons in Arabic but I'm looking for something more appropriate for my 8 month old. She already loves the songs on Sesame Street but it's only in English. Anyone know?

Is it too late to start my 10 year old with music lessons? How do you choose an instrument for kids to learn? Whatever they are interested in or something "practical" like piano?
