Hello, We are moving down to SP come Mar. 1st and I have a 2 (almost 3) year old daughter and 3 month old son. I heard that there is a preschool on AC and was wanting to get some info on it ( cost, who runs it, hours, activities, etc.)

She's also very sociable and I wanted to see if there are any dance classes at all in SP, or any regular activities for small ones. Oh, are there any Moms type clubs or get-togethers as well to get involved in?

Also, I'd like to try my hand at sewing as a hobby (did when I was young, but lost it)... anyone know cost of sewing machine on island or BZ city? Where can I get fabric and patterns?

Any info from anyone would be helpful! laugh Thx!

just my opinion but i don't think that there are to many american families down there with children, that are that young, i think that there is a dance studio on the island because there are a few dance companies down there.

Thanks. Yep, I'm aware we're probably be one of the only American families there.. but that's the great part. Looking forward to meeting new people and getting away from the overboard commercialism here. Can't wait!

There are a couple of preschools on the Island,sorry I can't remember all their names but had my fellow when he was young in the A.B.C. School, very similar to preschools here in Canada, there are lots of little ones in S.P. yours will find friends quickly, there a also a couple of dance schools down there, Barbara's Dance, and San Pedro Dance I think, ask at the primary school or library, what activities there are for little ones, enjoy.

no offense to any of the schools or teachers on AC, but i have heard some say that the educational curriculum is nothing like schools in the states. the schools there are not up to those standards,.
