Hi, I just moved close to Baden. As we are both working, we look for a day school or an international school for our eight year old daughter. Does anybody know a close school?

I have seen children in Switzerland riding wooden bikes without pedals. They push them along like you would a trottinette or scooter, but with both feet. I haven't found a mother yet to ask where to buy these, they are really neat. Does anyone know about these wooden bikes or where to buy them?

Hi, we will be moving to Zurich soon and I would like some opinions on the local German schooling. My 3.5yo currently goes to a Pre-school and she loves it, has lots of friends and comes home learning loads.We cannot comfortably afford international school (we have a 2.5yo who will go to the same school) do you think she will manage in a local German speaking school? She is a little shy and I would hate her to feel isolated and all her new confidence and things she is learning to come undone.I know that children pick up the language easily but how will she interact with the teachers? do they speak some english? Or is it worth putting her into an international school for a year or so until she can speak a little German?Im not sure where we will live but my husbands job is in Baden so I guess it will be that side of Zurich, are there any areas where a lot of english speaking children attend the local schools?sorry for all the questions but this is keeping me awake every night!

My friend took her daughter to the first day of playgroup (Spielgruppe) Her daughter speaks Swiss German and English. It was a disaster (they live in Zurich). None of the other kids could speak SwissGerman, and were from 10 different countries, it was sooo unorganised. and messy. She wants to rather pay more for the service and have someone qualified. Let me know if you know of somewhere. They live near Embrach

Does anyone know about soccer camps or lesson or after-school activities. My 8 year old wants to try out the sport, as it seems to be a big thing here in Switzerland.
