Default Moving to Cebu with 2 kids

Hi everyone
I really appreciate any help as I’m worried about the element of social life for my kids(2 and 8 years old)

Basically, we are a family of 4 moving next week to Cebu for few months(business contract).
we are planning on homeschooling our 8 years old. She plays Piano and Guitar and a good Tennis player for her age.

any tips of where to meet other families with similar age kids? And how to find club/activities/tutors?

Thanks

I don't know the answer to your main question but I think you might get better responses by joining the various Cebu Foreigners FB groups... assuming that you use social media that is.

At the moment schools are still closed and pupils are being taught with "modules".

Welcome to the Philippines!

Welcome to the Philippines!
Thanks for your reply which is really very helpful(especially the bit about schools still closed)!
I’m wondering if you can list any FB page I can use as most of the ones I’ve signed up to are outdated.


Thanks again,

On the schools there is a plan for limited face to face reopening in Cebu City next month.

Thanks again,
Had a quick look and three appear to be quite active with good membership:

Expats of Cebu. 1.8k members
Cebu city Expats. 1.2k members
Cebu Foreigners Club. 1.1k members
Best of luck
