    Nursery School in Bangkok

    Starting to look into nursery schools in Bangkok. Don't really mind if it's Thai or English but would like them to accept them at around 6 months.

    Any recommendations? I'd prefer them to be near Bang Na... but will listen to 'em all..

    well it depends if wifey starts her new job in time or not. if she does the baby can go with her if not we'll need a babysitter/nursery.

    just planning for the worst. i guess the dog could look after her.. or worse.. the mother-in-law..

    Much too young. Ask yourself - are a few baht worth losing your kids life for?

    They need to be with you and Mum for 3-4 years before they're away all day.

    I agree, too young.

    Seeing my daughter now at almost 1 year old and her mum gave up work to be with her full-time, seeing how happy, safe and secure she is, I cannot imagine giving up your baby to some nanny or nursery. We'll be doing at least the first two years (and probably first 3 years) with her mother at home with her everyday, money can't buy that for an infant.

    You could just drop the little tyke off on a suitable street corner in the mornings and pick her up on the way home?





    Could be a nice little earner....

    sounds good. lets hope she's born with a severe disfigurement (like looking like her dad) to really maximize profits.

    IMO anyone who has to turn a 6-month-old baby over to a kennel isn't yet ready to have children.

    His view will probably change.

    I was thinking the same before our kid was born. Now I consider the idea horrific, and cannot fathom how people give up their babies after a tiny maternity leave.

    I think Scandinavia is the only part of the World that gives mothers a year off. My wife will be taking full care of her until at least (the very least) two.

    Gonna bring it over here as well? He is exploring ideas and possibilities. This one was not popular as you can see.

    To a kennel, you have issues as well.

    True, and very distressing for kids at that age.

    We have a nanny and the GPs. Works great for us.

    My daughter won't attend until KG3. They learn more at home than at school in my opinion at an early age.

    I think we will have them enrolled from K1 and introduce them to school slowly. First just going over every morning to say hello to the teachers and kids and parents, while getting used to the place, and build it up. Come K3 it will be time for them to stay there.

    If attending a Thai school I think we will be bringing them late everyday anyway, to avoid all the conditioning/anthem/Thais are Gods chanting. The downside would be being even more different, and possible bullying from the Thai staff and teachers for daring to be a non-conditioned Thai..... tough call.

    it's not giving them up, it's finding someone to help out looking after them a few hours a day. if plan A fails then we will need a nanny or nursery. life, innit.

    plus i think the sooner she has social interaction with her peers the better.

    but like the guy up there said.. i might change my mind when i see her on something other than a black and white monitor.
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic
