I have been looking for a playpen for my 7 month old daughter. She is just learning to stand up and crawls all over the place. Not having one is driving me crazy as I have to keep an eye on her every single second. I had a look at Mother's Care and they only have 1 model and it is more than 300 CHF and that is even without any kind of soft floor mat. I should mention that I am looking for one that can stand on the floor, not the fold able kind. Can anyone point me in the direction of something useful and less expensive?

Ciao, I would like to know if there are some kindergartens in Zurich that have a full-time program for children in Italian Language? My boy is 4 and he speaks mostly Italian language, now he is joining some activities for kids in English but I consider that it is much better for him to join an Italian Kindergarten. I'm looking forward for your replies! Best of luck to all the expats!!!

Hello, Are there any art workshops for kids in Zurich during August? I would be more than happy to register my daughter for such a class, even if she's just 4 I think Cecile is already a little artist...:)

I was wondering if there are any airlines that have any discounts for children? I'm travelling often to the UK with my kids and unfortunately we pay a lot for the flight tickets. So maybe someone here has some tips to share...

Hello, I'm planning to go in Greece for 2 weeks at the beach, there's a little thought that bothers me lately. My daughter is only 2 years old, I heard that is not good for kids under 3 years old to be exposed at sun. What do you people think? Shall I cancel my trip in Greece? My daughter's health comes first!

Hi, I want to register my kids for some sporting activities, I thought swimming will be an excellent idea and suitable for them to have fun and learn to swim. Are there any parents who already registered their kids for swimming pool activities? I would appreciate if you share some of your opinions about the whole experience, also if you are satisfied with it!

Today I saw a lovely baby bouncy chair from Chicco. I took a closer look and the chair can either stand steady or be on a rocker. Very nice fabric - soft yet easily wipeable. I find it in a second-hand store and I think it's a little bit expensive- 60 CHF. What do you people think? Shall I go for this one or  is it better to look for a new baby chair???? It was in a very good condition.

Can anyone provide information about a good private nursery in Zurich?  My sister Rose is almost 3 and we need to find the best nursery for her.  As we recently moved we are not so familiar with the childcare schools around. Many thanks!
