We moved to Switzerland 4 months ago with my husband's job (Syngenta), and we have settled in Oberwil.We have 2 sons aged 9 and 4 (5 in November). My eldest started at local school 3 days after arriving here. To say i was nervous, scared etc for him was an understatement, but his school have been brilliant. They organised all his German lessons and kept in regular contact with me to let me know how he was getting on. He can now hold a decent conversation in German and he's told me he can't imagine living any where else now!
My youngest starts kindergarten on Monday and he's really looking forward to it. Again I'm apprehensive but deep down I know he'll be fine.
I haven't really got much information in child friendly activities. We have spent most of the summer at the outdoor pool in Bottmingen, Basel zoo or Grun 80 park.
Enjoy Switzerland. It really is a great place to live.
