    Hi,
    It depends on the daycare or baby sitter you get...See which available for you , is best. You have an already familiar or reliable baby sitter? Then opt babysitting...Else registered proven daycares are better....Try out.

    Thanks Sowmi!

    I agree with you. I too feel here, Day care centre is more safe than a baby-sitter.
    Any info about good play-schools/day care centres in Deira. I checked out one in Al Baraha but its a little far from my house.

    Bye

    Hi I am in Dubai, and I don't know any day care centres. As far as I know there are only babysitters, and I would advise you not to leave your child there unless you are absolutely sure of the person

    I tried babysitters, one used to threaten to put chilli powder in the children's eyes, if they did not listen, she also advised me to lock my child in the cupboard as a form of punishment told me it worked wonders on her own daughter
    Another used to spread newspapers on the floor for the children, they had to sit on them,eat on them and sleep on them, while her own children, used the furniture, i.e. chairs, beds, etc.

    Now, I have a maid so my child comes home from school, and is more comfortable.

    I am looking for a way to form playgroups for similar aged group children so they can have some fun like back home in India.

    Hi

    I am new to Dubai. I advertised for getting full time maid /baby sitter, but i didnt get proper response, i was not happy, i wanted indian/srilankan. But till date i coldnt get.

    Finally yesterday i made my 3 yr old to register in The Nursery Starters near Dubai Hospital in Al Baraha. There were many kids of her age. It is a villa turned into a nursery. She cannot join indian schools because of her age and other ineternational schools are very expensive. An moreover she is not used to getting up so early, so i have put her in the nursery so that she can get used to everything before she starts schooling in April.

    Because i relocated from Botswana, i do not trust baby sitters, i know my kid cannot get personal attention. But you can trust the indian ladies who offer baby sitting where you have to drop and pick up. I feel in your case baby sitting is better as your baby is too young. dont you have any relatives who can be with you for 3 months, every three months you have to invite your close relatives like your mom,mil,sil. But this is what i was doing for my daughter when i was in botswana till she turned 1. After that i moved to a place near my office where i could go and check every now nd then. Thanks to my boss who gave me a house near my office and their trustworthy maid so that i can continue working.

    Hello Everyone!!!

    I am new to Indusladies as well as I will be new to Dubai.....as am coming there with my family in a couple of months. I have a kid of 2 yrs. Are there playgroups where my child can enjoy the way he enjoys here in India??? Whats the quality of play centres / day cares??? HOw much do they charge per month??? What are the other facilities provided to children e.g food, playing atmosphere, teaching poems, alphabets, sleeping arrangements etc.....

    Besides this i will be looking for a job in d ubai. I have completed my Masters in Anthropology and have two years experience in the research project. At present am pursuing my ph.d. in India. Will be there any scope for me with the social science background??? in any NGO, Social Work Institute, Social Science Journals, Teaching occupation etc....

    Besides these two the primary concern is the place to stay in Dubai. Being an Indian I would like to stay in the area where there are more Indians around. Pls dont get me wrong....but being in the different country it makes all the things different.....Can anyone suggest me the area to stay in Dubai.....our range is minimum 4000 dhms to 6500 dms per month....for 1bhk flat.

    Pls do reply to my queries based on ur knowledge....

    Awaiting positive replies

    Bbye
