Hello,

Does anyone know of any mum and baby/toddler groups in these areas?  I'm moving to Algorfa next May and want to make friends....!  And find a playmate or two for my gorgeous son....

My son, Toby will be one when we move, and although I'm learning Spanish, I won't be anywhere near fluent enough to go to a Spanish group so I'm wondering if there's any that serve ex-pats. 

If there's not, do you think there's a gap in the market for one?? I might start one up when I'm there?! Hope there is though, I've got enough on my plate with moving to a whole new life!!

Thanks!! Jenna

I was in Algorfa in Feb and there appeared to be a good sized ex pat community on the urbanization I stayed on. Good luck with your search and with the move when it happens.

HI,

I am expecting a baby in June and moving to Los Montesinos which isn't far from Torrevieja in August. I also have a 2 year old daughter and would love to help out anyone that wants to start a mums and tots group. I am a reception teacher in England so love working with children and need something to keep me busy!

Would also love to hear from other mums in the area

Emma

emangel, we looked at houses in Los Montesinos and were stuck between buying one there and the house we eventually purchased in Algorfa.  Our house is now complete, we're just waiting for all the paperwork to be finalised so we should be out there by May (we hope, there seems to be no rush in getting everything sorted!)

Looks like there's a few of us who'd like a mum&baby group, and it'll be nice to meet other mums, I'm moving with just my husband and son so I'll miss gossiping with the girls if I don't meet anyone out there quickly!!

Good Luck with the move Jenna. Exciting isn't it?  We can't wait for august to come! Hopefully all the mums interested will be able to meet up for mums and tots somewhere.

 A group where mums (or Dads!!!) and their babies/toddlers get together where the children can play and the mums & dads have a very British cup of tea and a chat.  The groups local to me have soft play and other toys out for the children and offer tea/coffee/biscuits for the parents.  It's a really nice informal way of meeting other parents and encouraging your child to socialise with other kids.

at Algorfa at the moment they are running something very similar to what you are asking about.

they call it te musical Gargen and it is free for children under the age of 6,they get to learn instruments,play hide and seek,paint etc etc,

this is twice a week,tues and thurs.

The kids play and the mums get to sit and have coffee.

Great way to meet new friends of all nations........

There is also a private nursery in the town for the under 3's, again very similar to what you are looking for.....

Regards

Georgia

I know this thread was started some months ago but I thought I would have my imprint on it, I live in Formentera del Segura, which is sort of between algorfa and quesada, I have two babies Twins boy and girl of 16 months and I would also like to know of any mum and tots groups in the area, or if the persons who started this thread did manage to set up their own mums and tots group, 

Many thanks

Hi Kezzles,

Welcome to EOS, Orihuella is a fair distance from us, what the area called where you will live? or is it in the centre.  

We only have the two babies, well saying babies, they are fast becoming a little boy and little girl. We lived with my mum and dad for 13 months prior to moving here, so not a day went by when the seen the babies every day since they were born, They come ove with us for the first 3 weeks that we moved in, which I think helped the babies settle in a lot better, (not too much new stuff and familar faces). My parents have been over once since moving in March, so obviously no where near as much as we use to see them.

The kids do get a little upset for a few days after they have seen them, but soon fall back into the normal routine. 

Has for babysitters, I have never let the kiddies been baby sat, I always look after them, would cost more to pay a babysitter than the money I would earn going out to work.
I did however let my mam and dad spend a few hours on their own with them last time they were over, whilst me and hubby got told to go to the beach and enjoy our selves for a couple of hours alone. (we had a great time but was itching to get back to see them, dont know how I will cope when they start school, lol)

Children adjust quite easily, and although your little girl is a couple of years older than my two, she will adjust. In fact she may fall into it better as she is at school age and will make friends quicker than my two.

The other set of grandparents did not see them as often, and dont have contact with them via internet, although they come over more often than my mum and dad (finacial reasons) they dont remember them straight away when they do come. It take a few days to adjust to them again,

speak soon, take care and hope you settle in well
