Hallo zusammen!<br><br>
I've just moved to Berlin with my family (partner and two kids aged 5 and 3). We're staying here temporarily until the end of July.<br><br>
We are having a hard time connecting with other families and children because most people seem to have their children in the KiTa from quite a young age, so we find the playgrounds to be quite empty during the day and aren't finding any playgroups for children over 24 months.<br><br>
My kids are lonely and looking to interact with other children their age. I wouldn't mind meeting some like-minded parents too!<br><br>
I speak English and German fluently. My son (5) also speaks quite a bit of German and my daughter (3) understands some, but doesn't speak much. However, she's happy to play with children she doesn't share the language with (two of her best friends back home in Canada speak French and she doesn't).<br><br>
We'd love to connect with other families with children of similar ages in Berlin, either German or English speaking.<br><br>
Let me know if there is anyone out there....<br><br>
Annie

i wish we could gtg. i used to live in berlin before i met my husband i always loved it there.<br><br>
my kids also desperately need some companions but i'm guessing 600km is too far of a distance for regular playdates. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
wishing you luck in finding some nice people to play with.<br><br>
in the meantime, there's SO much to do in berlin, i'm sure you won't get bored. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
you could look for some music classes (like kindermusik or other programs) or gym classes. all the different sportvereine offer playful gym classes for your kids' agegroup. that way you could meet some other families and hopefully set up some playdates.

this is going to sound so stalkerish, but OP - you write a blog, don't you? I have just discovered it & really enjoy it!<br><br>
Anyway I am in London but love Berlin, so this post caught my eye... Back to stalking!
