Your Family in Qatar

Moving to Qatar with your family?

Children and family are an important part of Arabic culture, and parents with babies and toddlers are made welcome in most social situations. Health facilities and childcare provisions are generally of a high standard, and there is an active expatriate mothers' community that provides support.

The most common option for newcomers to Qatar when it comes to education is to enrol their children in one of the private international schools in Doha - of which there are several. Educational standards in these schools are generally high, although they can be expensive. Outside of school hours there is enough to keep kids from toddlers to teenagers busy, and you’ll find more details on both in this section.
