Hi. I am being seconded to HK in Feb and will be arriving with my husband, 2.5 year old and 7 month baby. My office will be in Central and I really need some help. There is no time for us to plan a visit so I need to rely on recommendations:
1) Company is paying for accommodation. Budget appears to be in the region of 80k. They have proposed apartments in a number of areas and I have read conflicting reviews on the internet. Suggestions have been Causeway Bay, Mid levels, Kennedy Town and Tai Hang - Any thoughts? If there is an area I should be looking at, please let me know. I would love somewhere that is in easy commute of work and the school but is great for young children. I don't mind traveling a bit but think it may be difficult for a 2.5 year old!
2) I intend for my 2.5 year old to attend Discovery Montesorri in Central. Any views?
3) Any recommendations for a creche for my 7 month old. I really do not want to get a live-in nanny. He has been attending nursery in the UK and loves interacting with other babies.
4) I would really like a cleaner/helper that works during the day - I understand that it is only legal if they are local. Any recommendations on where I should be looking.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
