    Looking for 'class/ playmates' for 3 year old

    Hi,
    My daughter is almost 3 years old ( Dec birthday) and isn't attending school yet. I'm in no rush to send her because I'm taking 6 months to a year out of my career (as a primary school teacher - UK/ international) to spend some time with her and her baby brother. Although she's really benefitting from individual 'home schooling', I feel she's really missing out on socialising with other children her age. She has plenty of younger friends, but no-one really on a similar developmental level to communicate with.

    I'm just wondering if there are any other 3ish year olds out there who would like to come a few times a week to join us for a couple of hours. I'm happy to host and prepare activities. I use the term 'home schooling' with some reserve because I am NOT about getting children to do rote learning and what I term 'monkey tricks'. The things I do with her include stories, songs, simple craft activities to develop her fine motor skills, games, walks outside and of course lots of 'free' play.

    Ideally I would like about 3 children with parents of similar mind -sets to me who can commit to a few hours a week - either in the morning (9:30 - 11ish) or in the afternoon (3 - 5ish). If there are any Cantonese speaking mums out there who fancy doing 'dual language'. (ie I prepare activities in English, but you bring a Cantonese story along/ help talk about what we're doing in Cantonese.) it may be an idea...?
    I'm based in TKO

    Many thanks,
    Cath

    Wanfamily,

    I'm not sure whether your group is formed. I have two daughters in 4.5 years old and 1.5 years old. We are also living in TKO. But, I'm a working mom and only available on Sat afternoon/Sunday or X'mas holiday. I'm a Cantonese speaking mom but my girls can talk both English and Cantonese.

    Can we join your group? or just make friends and date sometimes when holiday?

    I PM my phone no. to you.

    Elaine

    Hi all,

    Not sure if your group is still "recruiting"? My boy is ~4.5 yrs old and is free in the mornings cos he is in afternoon session. We are in Hang Hau. Pls let me know if we can join in?

    regards,
    Phoebe
