    Default Day Care in Saniago...

    My wife has been on me again about our son. I understand that christian school will be opening next week and my wife would like to send our 2 years old there. The problem is I heard that until certain age it's all same and we don't know if there's a space opening or not. I am going to send her along with her friend to see if there's opening there. Just in case they don't have any opening. I am going to talk to my wife about sending our son to day care since son is only 25 months old and still wears diapers. I wonder if there's good place where I can send my son for three days. I prefer English or bilingual place. Are there upscale day care center in Santiago and how much should I expect to pay if I send my 2 years to Christian School or very good day care for three days?

    I did a search only to find several hundred under "day care" and about 4 pages under "daycare" but no recent posting...

    And...
    Since my wife don't have driver's license back yet, is there a day care that pick up and drop off?

    Thanks...

    my friends in santiago send their kid to some "school" for a while now, he is 3 years old. they have english classes, meals provided and god knows what else, maybe gold lined pampers because it costs 8k pesos a month. but apparently is soooo good. he goes there 5 days a week, all day.

    Where in Santiago are you? There is a school on Carr. Luperon about 1/2 way on the right going up. They have students as young as 2 and I believe bus transport can be arranged. I will get the name for you and post it.

    Our house is near Lumijor.

    Luperon sounds familiar but then again all the street names sounds familiar....
    Thanks...

    You might consider "Nido". This is a very good day care place that is in the nicest neighborhood in Santiago. It costs around 5K a month. The children are taught Spanish and English. It goes from morning to 1 p.m.

    There are many, many other that offer good care for children, they really do....Again, if you want to come by here on Saturday we can take a run around the town and look at different places. It is really tough if the wife does not drive. I cannot imagine putting a 2 year old on a bus...sorry.
