New Mother in Zug...looking for other mum friends

Hello,

In July and August my husband is working in Zug and we (me and my 2 and half yr old daughter and 3month old son) are joining him. I'm completely new to Switzerland and am worried that no adult company all day might drive me a bit crazy! I would really like to find out about mother and toddler groups I can attend and meet other mums who I can make friends with. If anyone can help I would love to hear from you...hoping that I can make some connections from now so that we can settle in with ease.

Many thanks

Nermin

Welcome to the EF. I'm sure you will be able to hook up with people in a similar situation. Keep an eye on the Social Events pages as well.

Re: New Mother in Zug...looking for other mum friends

There is an organisation called IMKC (International Mothers and Kids Club) which has a meeting point in Baar (within a few minutes drive from Zug) in a building behind McDonalds. They have a website www.imkc.ch, when we first moved to this area I used to take my 3 year old to a playgroup there. It is english speaking, so plenty of english-speaking Mum's too. You stay with the child, it is not drop-off. It's quite informal and the kids can play and the Mum's can chat (inbetweeen interuptions!!) Different days are for different age groups, but you could take both kids to both appropriate days if you like. It's also a good way to find out other activities going on for small kids. I met people there that taught a P.E. class in english for 3-5 year olds once a week in Cham (also close to Zug!) called MUKI which my daughter used to love. Good Luck with your move.
