It is possible that my family will be relocating there for a year, beginning after the holidays. I am seeking info, especially about neighborhoods that are family friendly and walkable - we don't intend to get a car. Also very interested in school info for my 8yo girl. Are there any schools for Americans or what local schools are best? We will want to live near the school so we can walk easily (and I also have a 3yo girl). My husband will need good access to public transit. I'd be thrilled if we could get a cottage/house/flat that had a little private fenced yard space for them. We are used to having lots of space to roam and I think that would help. Doesn't have to be huge, but just a little space of our own.
Any info would be appreciated! I have so many questions, but the schools/neighborhoods/housing situation is the first one we need to sort out.
Thanks for any help!
