i'm moving to kal also in the new year. i lived there a year before but came home to have baby and now we are moving back. from what i have found out the ycma have play group and gym for kids as for day care i just rang them all an put my daughter on the wait list. well we should catch up when u get over there. my partner and i will be there in jan.
There are multiple play group options in different parts of town.
Daycare - we love ours which is in whitlock street, plus there is one in Rule court which is quite good. If I were you I would put your name down on a few as under 2 years is hard to get. The ABC still has a couple as well.
As for schools not sure what is good but again depends where you live. I have a friend who is a techer so can find out what she thinks
I moved to Kal a couple of months ago and am currently expecting baby number one in January. There is only one hospital in Kal and from the dealings I have had so far - the maternity section and the midwives are lovely. There is a couple of options for care - you can choose your OB/GYN (there are several in town) or you can do shared care between the midwives, hospital and the OB/GYN on call. I have chosen my doctor and he is fantastic - if you want to PM me I will send you his details. I am also attending pre-natal classes and the physio department runs fitness classes too! I will be happy to give you more details once I have bubs to let you know about facilites etc - but it all seems pretty good to me from what I have seen.
I have a great GP/Ob. I used a different one last time as I was a high risk pregnacy.
Just PM me if need as well if need and I can give you details
You will need to book into the hospital as well, just ring the maternity ward to do this
Good luck with the move - and if you need any details re Dr etc please let me know.
Have a great X-mas and New Year

Well after a holiday to Australia last week my DF and I are moving to Kal!!! I'm excited but nervous / anxious / scared at the same time haha. Looking at getting a part time job so I can meet new people. I have a DD who will be 2 in October and we are going to hopefully start trying to expand our family after our wedding in November.
Look forward to talking to you all!
