Re: Pregnant and moving to Zurich!

Welcome to Switzerland. We moved here last year didn't do a lot but I can share with you what I did with my 10 onth old son (now 22-month)

1) we joined a English speaking playgroup Gymboree - good to meet other English speaking moms and their babies. Also you can just walk in to the Starbucks at Oerlikon Maxbillplatz every Weds 9.30am.

2) Zurich zoo - very good place for kids, especially the monkey cage.

3) Swimming pool in Baar Lattich - we got a 3 months pass at 100CHF and it became the cheapest entertainment (apart from the parks and playgrounds) for us and thaere's where my baby learnt swimming with floaties.

4) Juckers farm - they change theme by season, where you can buy fresh fruits and veggies, and let the kids play with the goats.Check this out.

I am sure that you and your kids will love it here. We are moving to UK next month, already miss it here.
