Default Moving with a Baby?

Hi there,

my family might be relocating to Dubai in December, we got to decide within the next few days. My biggest concern is, that I would also be working and I don´t have the slightest clue how to organize daycare for my one-year-old daughter.

I heard, that there are looong waitlists for childcare. I also don´t know yet, what kind of housing our employer will offer.

Was somebody in a similar situation? How can the problem be solved?

I am grateful for any idea...

No! There is No waithing lists of what so ever!

If you come here with ur baby just call any daycare and everything is ok!

And you can hire a Filipino for around 600 Aed to take care of ur daughter!

This is not a Problem at all here in Dubai!

There are a Lot of Nurseries and a lot of service at affordable and cheap rates!

Hi

If you havenever been to Dubai before then please be assured that there is plenty of everthing you will need for your 1 year old!

There is a mother care and an Adam's to kit out your little one.

I, myself am moving with a 1 year old on 30/10 and will be looking for work, as for child care I have not given it much thought right now but your hunsbands it they offer housing allowance may also offer school / nursery fee's.

Check out expatmum.com for al;l you info on childcare and any other questions you may have.

Regards,

Default Childcare and waiting lists

Yes there are filipinos that are willing to care for your child, at a small cost but if you want private childcare which fee's can be covered by a spouses' employer then there are waiting lists, as there are for all the English Schools.

They do however favour British passport holders first. I personally will not allow any oen to care for my children other than myself, my husband or a very good friend who I can trust.

Hope all goes well for you.

Heart of Gold.
