Lugano - meeting other mothers and children / childcare

We are moving to lugano in the next months but will spend the first 2 weeks of January there. I and my 5 year old daughter would like to meet with other families (especially with other little girls about that age) to get to know each other, play and exchange experiences. My daughter speaks only german so far, but that will hopefully change soon. Currently we are staying at Parco Maraini.
I have no mobilephone number yet, only when arriving in Lugano, so please send an email and I will contact you.

Re: Lugano - meeting other mothers and children

Hi Choe,
Welcome to Lugano! Have you looked into the American Women of Ticino (www.awot.ch) or the International Women's Club of Lugano (www.iwcl.org)? Both organizations have activities for kids. These may be a good start! I also have a daughter who is 5 and a son who is 8. They were 3 and 6 when we arrived.

Both speak English and Italian. We arrived here 1-1/2 years ago. Neither spoke any Italian when we arrived. They speak very well now! Your daughter will pick up the language in no time.

Good luck!
Joslyn

Re: Lugano - meeting other mothers and children

If you're church-going folk, St Edwards has a decent amount of families and you can pack your kids off to their Sunday School: www.anglican.ch/lugano

If you're not, it still might be worth a visit to get a foot in the door

Re: Family Information for New People to Switzerland

My husband and I are considering taking jobs in Lugano. We would arrive in about 6 months. We have a daughter who will be 14months at that time. Does anyone know where to go to find daycare information in the Lugano area? I have heard that you must get on a waiting list early. I am concerned we won't be able to find care for her in time. Do you have any info or advice?

Re: Family Information for New People to Switzerland

Here are the adresses for Lugano only:
http://www.lugano.ch/lugano-pratica/...sili-nido.html

If you are going to move to another village or town you'll probably find the addresses for the local daycare on the specific town's homepage.

Re: Lugano - meeting other mothers and children

This is an old thread I've linked the new question to, but there is info in there which might be helpful. The original thread you replied to we try to keep for more general information and not for specific questions or discussions on a specific region.

There seems to be very little about Lugano and children on here. Don't they have children in Tessin?

Re: Lugano - meeting other mothers and children / childcare

This place might be interesting (Google translated it so don't blame me for grammatical mistakes)
La Cittā dei Bambini
