Hi,

hope you like Brussels! We might join too in the near future.

You can contact the Childbirth Trust, they offer advise from cloth diapers, LLL to home schooling in Belgium.

There is a helpline/infoline for members and prospective members. HTH.

there is another homeschooling group, it's Christian based, but open to anyone.

Summermay, thanks for the suggestions! I am already member of BCT but I find that their programs and events are more for families with babies and toddlers, my children are of school age. I will check out the homeschooling group though, thanks!

HI! We may be moving south of Brussels over the summer. We are planning, but with the US Gov, things are never official until they happen. . I would LOVE to meet other liked minded moms. My oldest 2 are (young) school aged. We have a 3yr old and a new baby on the way too.

Hi! We just found out today that we will be moving to Belgium this summer My DH is a teacher and will be teaching at the NATO elementary school. I'm so excited!! We'll be there at least 7 years (our minimum on our contract), but from what we've heard, we might be there a lot longer. I'm so excited to learn everything I can before we go

I haven't been to the board in a long while now, mntnmom, did you find out, are you moving here? treemom2 let me know if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer, I know it's a lot to figure out around here. Good luck with the move, you will love it here, Brussels is a very beautiful city with lots to offer for children. Check out www.365.be for things to do in Belgium and www.xpats.com for all things expats.

Good luck to both of you!

Hi, I just joined mothering and am hoping to find other mamas in Brussels. My partner and I will be moving there in early August with my 4 yr old daughter and 9 month old son. It would be great to get together and play with some other kids near my girl's age.

Hi All!

I'm based out of the SHAPE/Mons area of Belgium with a 2-year-old and another one on the way.

Pleased to meet you all.

Hi everyone!  Well, I've been here in Belgium for almost a year and it's been an adventure so far!  Our family has been exploring the area and trying to meet people, which is so hard since we don't know any French and I think I have a major brain issue with learningwild.gif  I'd love to get together with some other mdc mamas in the area.  We go to Brussels all the time :)  Anyone interested?

I know this thread is a bit old, but are any of you guys still there? Do you like it? Would you recommend doing it if given the chance?

I'm still here in Belgium, but not on mdc as often as I was when my kids were a bit smaller :)  I really like it here now but it was hard in the beginning. . .especially coming from Japan.  If you have questions I'd be happy to try and help you with them. . .I sent you a personal message.
