playgroups, nursery Kaohsiung

Welcome to Forumosa's corner for moms and dads to talk about the issues involved in parenting in Taiwan.

playgroups, nursery Kaohsiung

Postby huda0816 » 14 Jul 2011, 09:13

hi everyone

i will move to Taiwan with my girlfriend and our little daughter (2 years old) to kaohsiung in august. at the moment we are a bit concerned that our daughter won't have any peers. We will live at the NKFUST Campus. My girl friend's boss asked us if we need a babysitter and we told her that we would prefer a nursery. she didn't react - so i guess there won't be a nursery at the campus. Our daughter speaks german but we are sure she would learn to speak Mandarin faster than us. do you know if there are any nurseries in kaohsiung?

From my (limited) understanding, it's not typical to put children in schools or nursery's before they can actually start school, so it may be hard to find many. We currently live in Kaohsiung with our toddler, but haven't found any formal playgroup, yet. Have you?

Most kindergartens will accept kids 3 and over in the "little class", and I am sure you can find more who are willing to bend the rules a little. Kindegartens in Kaohsiung are nearly as common as 7-11s. They are everywhere you look. NKFUST, where is this in the city?
