      my son goes to abc childcare centre on griffiths drive and loves it, been there over a year and cant fault the care. Its about $60 a day but you can claim half of your out of pocket childcare back every 12 weeks as childcare tax rebate and you may be entitled to childcare benefit depending on your family earnings which also reduces the cost of childcare. Governement run family day care centers are cheaper but i dont know how much and i think they are difficult to get places in. Hope this helps x

      Call in on a Wednesday evening and see Margaret Featherstone (group leader) and she will advise you on the groups joeys, cubs and scouts.

      OH already working and I plan to start looking as soon as things have settled a bit. In the meantime I would appreciate any information on good childcare (nursery or childminder) toddler groups or are there any of you mums/gals out there who meet up at all in the area? (I also have a 2 year old).

      Eldest is keen to start living the life, scouts, surf lessons, soccer so if anyone has anymore information on these or any ideas for Grace it would be great. Does anyone have kids of a similar age and fancy meeting up?

      Thanks again,

      Sara, Howard, Will, Grace and Isabel.

      Hi guys and welcome to Adelaide!
      We have been here 14 months now and I still wake up some mornings shellshocked that we are here!!
      Our middle daughter Emily, (9 ) goes to Seaford Rise school. She is in year 3. She loves it there and is doing really well. She settled in quickly and made friends easily.
      Our youngest Katie (4), goes to seaford rise kindy, 3 mornings a week. They do a mother and toddler group on a Friday morning, 10-45 till 12-30. Its about $3 and they are a nice bunch. We are buying a plot of land at Seaford Meadows and are renting in Noarlunga Downs.
      I am always up for meeting and getting some jaw exercise!

      :)A great place for your son to start would be the Surf lifesaving clubs, although they are off season at the moment, it will all kick off in October i think, We are members at Southport( without doubt the No 1 club down south;)) just the other side of the footbridge, there are other clubs. Its a great place to meet people and fun for the whole family, even us old's can get involved, and I did my Bronze Medallion last year.

      Whilst I am on with trying to find my feet, can anyone recommend a "good" hairdresser and does anyone know of someone who does piano lessons?

      Thanks, Sara
