I’m planning to move in the Cascais/Ericeira/perhaps Lisbon area, and looking for schools for my 15 and 12 year old. They attended school in the Netherlands so far and they’re both fluent in English, so I would strongly prefer to give them a soft landing in a private, possibly English speaking, small school rather than a big jump into Portuguese, or the super renowned, big and ultra expensive international (British) schools in the area. I saw a post here where someone was mentioning a nice, small private school for their kids close to Ericeira. Does anyone have experience with that? Could you send links or school names to check out? Thank you all so much!
Hello! My family and I are staying in Cascais for a month. It’s wonderful, but I haven’t found any places to take my toddlers so they can play with other kids. I’ve tried taking them to parks and so far we haven’t met anyone. Any suggestions on where to meet other families? Are there any mom/toddler groups around? Thanks!

Hello everyone,My husband and I moved to Lisbon recently with our 8 month old baby boy. He's super cute and very friendly, and I would love for him to meet other babies his age. My Portuguese is not good enough yet, so I am looking for English, Italian, German or French speaking moms who would be interested in meeting up and letting the little ones play :)Looking forward :)
Hi everyone! I am a portuguese mother of 3, currently living in Lisbon, looking for any native english speakers that would like to learn portuguese while hanging out with my family and helping the kids practice their english.We are not looking for a babysitter, just a friendly someone that the kids can interact with for a bit on a regular basis. Our family has lived in Hamburg and Dubai before having returned to Lisbon last year, so making friends from different countries, languages and backgrounds is part of how we like to enjoy life.My 5 year old is fluent in portuguese, english and german, my tiny twins juggle some portuguese words and I want them exposed to english asap :)Looking forward to hang out with new friends!

My wife and I work full time and have decided that we would like to hire a competent nanny. We have 1 child, a 4 yr old with special needs. We're hopeful to find someone who will work on getting our child up to speed for kindergarten when the times comes including additional English and Portuguese language skills. The person should be especially kind and patient.20 hours per week and this is not a live in position.

We have been living in Lisbon since September along with our 15yr old son. We know the area well as my husband is Portuguese (i'm english). My 15yr old son could do with making a few friends though. I was wondering if there is anyone out there with teenagers or if anyone could point us in the right direction. We lived in France for 10yrs prior to moving to Portugal, so he can speak french/english and a little Portuguese. He's a typical teenager into sports, music, etc.. would be lovely to hear from anyone
