Baby/toddler Playgroup

Hello, I just recently moved to Eiyadh with my 8 month old baby girl and I am interested in forming a playgroup for her where she can meet and spend time with other kids and for me to get to know other mothers. I live in the Murabba area. Please let me know if you are interested. I would love for us to get to meet new people and make new friends :)

Hi, did you have any success with the Mum and baby group? I have just moved to Riyadh with my 5 months old and would be interested to meet other mums and their little ones for play and a chat

Hi Gemma!

I am moving back to Riyadh from Slovenia in April this year and have a baby girl who is turning 1 year old on the 9th of April.  Interesting to see that you're from Liverpool  as i used to live there myself for 2 years before i moved to Cheltenham and then Birmingham. Did you have any luck finding a nice playgroup circle? I am also interested in meeting up with new mummies!

Hey,
I'm actually from the Wirral just across the river from Liverpool.
I have had no luck finding a baby toddler group but I did discover a good nursery on my compound for babies from 10 months so that at least will give my daughter some social time haha
Do you know which area you will be moving to?

Aahhh for some reason i always consider Wirral to be Liverpool, sorry! I used to live in Riyadh for about a year and then i moved to Slovenia to have my baby and been here for a year since then. I'll be moving back to Riyadh in April and will be living at a compound called 'Sadhan' based in the Ummul Hamam area. Where are you living and how long have you been in Riyadh? :)

Hi Gemma,

I'm Tamanna I moved to Riyadh last year with my 2abd a half year old daughter and have been looking for a mother and toddler group but have been unsuccessful. I would love to meet up and create a group. Have you found any groups yet?

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Tamanna

Hi My name is Huda, I live in Riyadh Im looking for a playgroup for my 1 year old, please add me to your group ,

Thanks

Hi Huda

This is Haifa

I am looking for the same thing for my nearly 2 year old daugher.

Where r u located  in Riyadh ?

If you guys are looking for a daycare, then there is one in Al Izdihar, it's called sharaqa. Majority of the kids there are expats from Egypt, Palestine, so English may not be their main language, but your kids get to socialise with other kids, and they are open during ramadhan. I called them two days ago and they mentioned they are open from 7am to 3pm and they charge 1250. Normally they charge 1600sr per month but I guess it's ramadhan so it's cheaper.

Hi Hayoof ,
I live in Sulaymaniyah , There are a couple of nice small parks in the playgrounds nearby in sulaymaniyah ,
I was wondering if any mommy's and kids would like to join me in a picnic/ tea.

Please message me in my inbox if you are interested and we can start small whatsapp group
, introduce ourselves, share our hobbies, and our kids can socialize.

Thanks
Huda

Sounds good but I am in exit 5

So something near by me would be idle

Let me know if that works for you and we will arrange something inshallah.

Hello ladies,

Any updates on forming this group??

No unfortunately

So why dont we go ahead? We can start by forming a whatsapp group as someone previously suggested, and then take it from there. I don't mind setting it up.

Who's in? 😊

Hi there,

Just found this forum! Great news for me and my little one! I am looking for a playgroup for my almost 2 year old daughter. She really needs someone to play/ interact with other than me and my husband! :-) Please contact me for any advice you people can give

Thanks!

Hi ladies,

I'll be moving to Riyadh soon and would love to be included in any play dates etc. My son in 3 and loves playing with any age!  We won't be in Riyadh until end of August....we are currently living in the U.K. We have lived in Qatar before but not Saudi, and I've heard it's not easy to meet people.

Does anyone have any advice on preschools that take 3 year olds and information on "western compounds" or compounds in general with all the facilities.

Sarra x

Hi Sarra,

My name is Arun and am from India. Western compounds are very expensive and may range from 50000 Saudi Riyals and more. But they have all the facilities including pool, schools, stores, etc. I have never been to any compounds but i have done research on getting a place in compounds.

Regards
Arun

P.S. Just realised that this is a girls only forum, i replied thinking that the query was about compound living.

Hi Sarah,
There r many play schools.mine is too 3 year old.

Hi Sarra,

I'm also from the UK.  Ive been in Riyadh almost a year now. Im currently in the UK on holiday.   I have an almost 3 year old. We don't live in a compound but I've heard Ishbiliyah compound is good also granada not experienced being there. Sorry I'm not much use.

You are right though it is very difficult to meet people in Riyadh.

I hope you meet alot of people and enjoy your stay in Riyadh it's a beautiful place.  Maybe we can meet up.

Tamanna

Thank you all for your messages on the info I asked about!

-Tamanna, will definitely be intouch wants we get to Riyadh. :-)

Thanks Tamanna. Wher about are you in the U.K.? Will you be returning to Riyadh?
If so, I will be intouch once I have a number there and we can definitely meet up. Is you child/children in nursery or preschool yet?

How do you like living there? I'm a bit appr hensive naturally I suppose, but excited at the same time. A new adventure!

Oh and did you manage to meet other families/mums? This forum seems really old.

S x

That's really good to know!

Hopefully will get to meet you all x

I'm from Bimringham/Bradford. Where are you from?  Yes inshaAllah I will be returning to Riyadh in September. I havent met many families,  as I said I don't live in a compound so it's kind of hard to meet people as I've found alot of the Arabs don't seem to want to mix. Feeling nervous is natural but try and keep positive I'm sure you will enjoy it in KSA it's a beautiful place.

Tamanna

I like living in Riyadh but miss my family alot that's the downside.

My daughter is not yet in pre school she will be going in September inshaAllah.
