Moving to Cairo with my family

Hi all,
I was offered a job in Cairo (a two-year contract). I lived in Egypt for a year in the past (I studied there a decade ago) and enjoyed my time there, but now, my personal situation is quite different as my husband and our 18-month-old baby girl would be moving with me.
So I am asking myself many questions, and would really need some advice/information:
We would like to live in Maadi. What would be the average rental prices for a two-bedroom apartment?
We would also like to find an English (or French) speaking nursery not too far from where we live. Any suggestion/information would be very helpful.
What about paediatricians or children hospitals nearby?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello MagGB,
Given the current economical situation; rental rates aren't stable. In the meantime; a suitable place in a decent area in Maadi may cost you around 3500-5000/month.
