English playgroups in Oerlikon?

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and just relocated to Zurich two weeks ago. I would like to find english playgroups or daycare centers or international pre-school for my 20 months old boy. Activities like singing, story time, gym would be good. Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Thanks,

Cookie

Re: English playgroups in Oerlikon?

I'm just wondering the same thing myself but looking for something more for like soft play in or around Oerlikon for my two who are 4 & 1 as they're driving me bonkers and need to let off some stream before before they break something.

i had a scan but didn't get much in terms of indoor soft play where i can let them run themselves ragged.

thanks.

Give Starbies in Dietikon a try ... they have plenty of room to run, trampolines, climbing area, balls area ... it should do the trick

Re: English playgroups in Oerlikon?

Hello!
Have you checked out the TEZET Quartierzentrum in Oerlikon? It's on Gubelstrasse. They have two English speaking playgroups - one on Wednesday afternoons and one on Friday mornings both are held on the second floor.

The TEZET also has a great (and free!!!) indoor playroom on the ground floor (called the Innenspielplatz) which is open Tues to Fridays, 10am til 5pm. There's a playhouse, an indoor slide, a climbing frame, a small trampoline, some ride-on cars and various other toys. A very useful place for a change of scene or when the weather is bad - your kids can burn off their excess energy running around. As a side note, I've met loads of English speaking mums at the TEZET. There's a nice little cafe there too.

If you are looking for an English speaking pre-school type of place, there is the Happy Nest in Oerlikon which I can recommend highly, but I believe your child needs to be 2.5 to join.

Hope you find something!
