Moving to Montreux

Hello, we are an english family moving to Montreux in 3 weeks time. We are currently sharing our time between the UK and Zurich but have decided this year to take the plunge and reunite the family in Switzerland. We are Mum, Dad, daughter 12, daughter 9 and son 8 and Margot the dog. Looking forward to meeting new people, making new friends and discovering all the area has to offer. Any hint and tips on helping to settle the kids would be gratefully received.

Re: Moving to Montreux

Welcome to the forum and soon to Switzerland.

Kids should do pretty well at those ages. Do any of them speak French? Swiss schools are well organised to help on the language side. Eldest daughter might have the most trouble as getting close to needing to decide what she wants to do with her life and if she doesn't speak the language that will add a bit more pressure.

What type of dog? Switzerland has quite strict dog ownership laws - you'll need to do the SKN course as well as register her with the commune for the dog tax and also a visit to a vet within 10 days of arrival so she can be checked over and added to the AMICUS database.
