Mums with young babies in Geneva


I'm wondering if there are mums in Geneva area with young babies that would like to meet up, I have a 5 month old little girl, Isabel. It would be great to meet some other mums that would like to meet up and maybe start looking for a playgroup or for coffee and company. Or can anyone suggest a nice playgroup that would be a good one to go along too,

Re: Mums with young babies in Geneva

Hello everyone-

There was some discussion on Expat-Moms-in-Switzerland about playgroups in Geneva and this is what was posted...

"I go to the Gymboree in Bern with my 1 year old daughter. I know they have one also in Geneva, next to the airport. Check the site out; www.gymboree.ch"

"there's a group who meet every Thursday at 10h30 and tomorrow they're meeting at Baby's Lounge in Old Town."

There is a group of moms on that list who meet once a month on a Saturday with their kids.

And this below is from our files section on Expat-Moms (it is kind of old so I am going to post now to the group to ask for updated info)...

Kiddie Club Playgroup
66 route de Chene
Educational bilingual playgroup for children 8 months to 3 years
Kiddie Club Reading Group
English reading & writing courses
From 4 years to grade 9
You can try the Halte Garderie La Madeleine
16 place de la Madeleine, old town (022 310 1537)
They take children from 18 months to 4 yrs old
You don't have to enroll, you can leave your child at any time provided
there is space -if I remember correctly, up to 20 children-from experience,
it is always busier in the morning than in the afternoon. Your child can
stay a maximum of 3 hrs in a row, 3 times a week. They charge by the hour, CHF 5.- (that's how much they used to charge last summer, I have not been there since)
It is very convenient when you have some shopping to do downtown and don't want to drag your little one along.
Another play group is 'La Bulle d'air', chemin du Pommier in Grand Saconnex
Musical playgroup from 18 months
1 hr per week Wambui has been going there for over a year now and she loves it
The American International Women's club has weekly meeting for Mums &
children called 'Baby talk' & 'Kids are welcome' for the older ones. It is
a nice way to meet other mums and make friends.
The club's number is 022 736 0120
Playgroup Programme
Crossroads, Ferney-Voltaire, France
"The group is suitable for 18 months - 8 years as they also have a
reading programme.They play "rough & tumble" ;O), sing, make
crafts,have snack and story time. There is also a childrens library
where you can take out great books in English."
"Playgroup Programme is an association of International parents
which organizes structured, English-language playgroups".
Its between Nyon and Geneva.The village is called Chavannes-des-Bogis.
Nearest bigger agglomerations are Coppet CH or Divonne-les-Bains in
France. The "garderie"is called Candy Club and takes children from 2 1/2 to 6 years.
In addition to the "garderie" there is also a great outdoor playarea
for children at the Manor restaurant. Its where all the international
mums meet up!!! So if you are new to the area you can easily meet
others there. Manor has free "sirop" for kids, changing tables, Tripp
Trapp chairs(;O) and great food....
