Daycare and playgroups in Taipei where are you?

Postby tikitarita » Mon May 02, 2016 04:42

I'm moving to Taipei with my 6 month old son (from NYC). We are looking to live in Tianmu to be near more expat families, but I'm either not using this forum correctly, or most of the posts about playgroups, mommy meet ups and day cares that take babies under 18 months are so old! I've tried searching for a Tianmu mommys Facebook group, but can't find one. Can anyone give me info on day care or nannies for a 6 month old and where I can find other mommies to meet up with?! :)

Hi tikitarita, and welcome to the forum! Yes, those posts are quite old -- it just reflects the history and demographics of the site.

I don't have an answer for you other than to say that once you are in Tianmu you will bump into plenty of expats with baby strollers and can ask them; and there is a bulletin board at an import store called Wellman's on Zhongshan N. Rd., which you can check (and post on).

Hi there and welcome.
There is a Tianmu playgroup but they made it a secret group for privacy. If you PM me I can add you to the group.

Regarding daycare centers for infants, there are very few. As for nannies I know of one who has become available in the mornings and is highly recommended, if you would be interested in part time care. Can share her phone number with you by PM.

thank you! I messaged you my email address for the playgroup, but forgot to ask the nanny's info. It won't let me pm you again for some reason. Can you send me her info? Thanks again! I appreciate it!

Just Jennifer....Hi! Also browsing through here looking for info....will be moving to the area in October, with my 2 1/2 yr old. I would like to send him to kindi or preschool. Any recommendations? Is it too late to look for a place? Also....are there any decent serviced apartments in Tianmu to start off with? Thanks!!
