Re: Where to live near Montessori schools and Enge

The best thing to do, if it is possible, is to do an observation visit to each of the three schools you're considering before you sign any contracts. All three schools have AMI-trained Montessori teachers in the classrooms. Each has a different feel, so you should visit to check which one you personally like the best.

Travel times within Zurich are not so bad to/from any of the places you mentioned. Use the SBB app (on their website - sbb.ch ) to calculate travel times by public transport, as driving into Zurich is tricky not just for traffic, but parking is difficult in most places (unless you rent a parking space).
I know a few people who live around Thalwil / Kilchberg and have children in d'Insle or Sprungbrett, it's not such a long journey (about 25 minutes) - and some of the children going to all three of the Montessori schools travel alone to primary school, some with journeys of just over half an hour on public transport for children as young as 8 or 9. Once they know the route it's simple, and most fellow commuters will help on the rare occasions they have trouble with anything. The reliable public transport connections make that simpler as well.

Good luck with your search for a place to live!
