Default Family with youngs kids just arrived in Riyadh

Hello everyone

I have been living in Riyadh for about 3 months and the visas for my family finally got sorted out so they have recently joined me. We have a couple of young boys who are 3 and 4.

We are on the Najd compound and have made some friends on Al Hamra and Cordoba but seem to be struggling to find many people with young kids for our boys to play with. Our eldest is in the Foundation 1 at the British school.

Is there anyone out there who would be interested in setting up a play date?

Try getting them to play with non-Brits as it will broaden their education.

Hi sounds good and will PM you with some contact details.

Nadj is okay, the houses are really big and the kids love running around all the space. Facilities are not as good as many other compounds.

From what we can see it is not a very sociable compound, the Christmas party was cancelled today because no one wanted to go. Maybe we haven't been here long enough to get involved?

Fal is right next door to Najd.

All the best for the move.
