    What about groups for Mom’s with school age kids who are new to Dubai. My kids may be in 4th, 5th and 6th grades but it’s still lonely for me sitting home not knowing anyone. I would love to meet some other moms with kids of any age.

  3. Susanna says:

    There’s also Mamans de Dubai on Facebook.

    Also, please check the ANZA website for updated info on their playgroup:

    I was wondering if there was any playgroups in the Meadows/Springs area. I just moved here a couple of months ago and have a 19 month old son and a 3 1/2 year old daughter and are originally from Canada. I’d love to find a couple to attend with my son while my daughter is in school. It would very nice to meet some moms and kids.

    • Wendy says:

      Hi Becky, Unfortunately we are unaware of any playgroups in Meadows/Springs. We will notify you if we find one! My recommendation would be to go to the playgroups in The Greens (very close to the Springs). Try the Munchkins Playgroup and the Greens Sunday Morning Playgroup. Hope that helps 🙂

  5. Hally says:

    Is there a group for WORKING new mum’s or mums to be? All groups are catering for stay-at home mums. Is there such a group or interest to set up such a group to meet on weekends – even if early. Anyone interested please contact me on and maybe we can start an informal/casual group that meets weekly or every other week.

  6. Ali says:

    Hi, Is there a playgroup/mums group in Silicon Oasis do you know? We are desperate to make some friends for our little boy.
    Many thanks,

    • Wendy says:

      Hi Ali,
