Probably the best I have seen in Shanghai. English and chinese teachers in all the classes. My kids are 3 and 5. But they cater for 6 months upto 6 years. Opening in early September.

Friends We have a two and half year old, I am caucasian and DH is Chinese, on a recent trip to Xi'an baby attracted a lot of attention which was fun but my gut feeling was to keep him near to me in case anyone would grab him. I know Shanghai is not Xi'an, but we are considering living in Xi'an, I suppose because it is NOT Shanghai, if that makes sense and I want a more 'immersion' lifestyle than an expat one. Just wondered if I am thinking too much post Maddie McCann or if anyone has security concerns about small kids in Shanghai or China.Love any feedback and advice, thank you!

Some foreign families choose to hire ayis to help with clearning and home maintenance, looking after kids and pets, and even just to expose kids to Mandarin language. Ayis can work part time or full time. Before hiring one, you should discuss with your family what you want out of the ayi: will she be there simply to cook and clean, or will she be more integrated into the family. You can search for your Ayi candidates by referral, in classifieds sections of websites and newspapers, or by contacting ayi agencies directly. Here is a list of some AYI agencies: Fuxin Family, CCShanghai, Sarah Home Service, and AyiPro. During the interview stage of selecting the most suitable Ayi, discuss with the potential ayi your expectations as well as her expectations (in terms of wages) and her other commitments (if she works part time for you, she may in fact be working as an ayi for several other families).

I was kind of headache when she said she could not do the job anymore, she never asking for increase the salary directly but I know it's all about money. Is there anybody who can referral some good Ayi for referral or a possible interview? Many thanks.
