We are about the take the decision but we need some critical information, hopefully we will have our second son in August (we have already a three year old), and these are the main concerns regarding the baby:
- Nursery: we now there are no official Aramco nurseries, but how are the private ones? Are they only places to leave the children to play or are the children educated there? What opening hours do they have? Do they have there meals there? Are they run by teachers or educational technicians?
- Pediatrician: is there a local pediatrician attending at Ras Tanura´s Clinic for check-ups and vaccinations and casualties?
The pediatrician in RT is excellent, though I think he may be retiring soon.
A nursery would depend on the age of your kids. There are a few private preschools which take 2 year olds+. It used to be easy to get a part time (non live in) nanny, but since the mass deportations started last year its become a lot more difficult.
