Bilingual schools within commute to Lucerne

Hi all,
I am moving with my 2 girls in June from Ireland and still looking for a bi-lingual school. My husband works in Lucerne and we are hoping to rent within a reasonable distance from the town.
We are waitlisted for the Four-Forest School, but wonder is there another bi-lingual school within a 'commutable' distance which anyone can recommend?
Neither of my girls have German (yet), but are taking lessons.
Any sage advice would be appreciated!

Hi Cormac,

I just found your post as I am also moving to Adligenswil in mid August and also looking for a bilingual kindergarten for my 2 kids (4 years old daughter and 2 years old son). Have you found any bilingual nurseries in Adligenswil?

Thank you!

Hi PawJac, Welcome to the forum.

Daycare placements would be easier to find when you are here.

Things to watch out for when coming here include that things are a lot more expensive. There are a number of saving tips, but there are very few places like Tescos in this country.
For example, childrens socks and underwear: cheap socks = 5chf, cheap singlet or pants = 10chf. The expensive ones of course can be a lot more. Easily 30chf.

Make sure that your wife starts German lessons in your area. It will get her out of the house and making new friends. It will be very lonely for her in the beginning, and if nothing else, best case, this can effect your job performance, worse case, you will all end up very unhappy.

Here are some pointers for that:

ECAP is also very good as they offer childcare.

Have a look though the forum. As you have probably found, there can be useful information (there is also a lot of drivel, just like in Real Life )
11. Knowing deep down that you gave your dreams a fair chance. – Most of the time the only difference between a dream that came true and one that didn’t, is a person who wouldn’t give up and one who did.
