Default Kids on the Costa Blanca

I have just returned from the uk after a week with the family. I can`t tell you how much my 18 month old daughter loved playing with her cousins. She really came on loads in a week. I really miss that now as there are no kids living near us. She is on her own all day playing, which she doesn`t seem to mind but i know she would be better with other kids.

She goes to playgroup 2 mornings a week but there does not seem to be the same social network here as there is in the uk. does anyone know of any groups or clubs?

We don't live in your area but I've noticed that since the extended family all usually live in the same village/town that toddlers tend to socialise with their (numerous!) cousins, and parents don't seem to feel the need for mother and toddler groups as we had in the UK. Then they are in full time school from 3 years! It does make it a bit harder if you want your toddler to make some friends.

I've seen a number of nursery schools advertised in the local papers, so there certainly are some on the CB South.
