Parenting Fair Bake sale

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

A quote from Esther de Vries:”The Fair is a wonderful way of finding out all about parenting resources in the area and even beyond” .

  • Where: in the Kirchgemeindehaus in Kilchberg
  • When: this Saturday, 17 March 2007
  • Time: non specified
  • Who: For all parents with children that would like to have fun with Face Painting, Magic Show, Story Telling, International food stalls, PC Help, and over 60 Exhibitors.
  • Comments: Refreshments all day and much much more

UPDATE: We did attend this event and it was quite good. The entrance was free of charge and there were lots of activities for children. There were also many information booths and very tasty international food.

Overall, what we found it of most interest was the information that we got about all the DayCare institutions as well as Kindergartens as we might enroll our daughter in one of them.

I certainly recommend it to you in case you are interested in attending next year.

Gymboree Zug: Open day

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

The Gymboree site located in Zug is having an open day for you and your baby to “sniff in Music, Play and Arts”.

  • When: 17 March 2007
  • Where: At Gymboree Play & Music Zug, Bahnhof Zug (second floor), 6300 Zug.
  • Time: 14:00pm – 16:00pm
  • Who: For all parents with children from 0 to 5 years old.
  • Comments: Drinks and snacks will be offered.

UPDATE: We did attend the open day at Gymboree located in Zug. Having already experience with Gymboree sites, we did find the open day not very enthusiastic. We really went just to sniff because we did not feel very attracted by the way the organization was conducted. I have to give credits though to the music teacher who did her best to keep everyone focused in the class and not get distracted by the crying babies attending.

  • When: 4-6 May 2007
  • Where: ABB Event-Halle 550 Zurich-Oerlikon
  • Theme: Helden des Alltags (Everyday heroes)
  • Comments: It is quite expensive for what they offer. At least, that was our impression last year that we attended. Anyway, you might find it interesting and worth the 15CHF admission price.
