Child care is available for babies (6 months onwards) and children up to 5 years.
So, what do you do with the kids during these holidays? Well, the good news is that there are options for everyone.
The one thing I've experienced here is that you go to work to work, not make friends. I've worked in six places in the last three years in Australia, but I haven't made a single friend at work.
When you move from India, one of the things you want is a nice house with a back yard, but as Andy looked for those houses in Mawson Lakes, we realised that could wait till we found jobs. Yup, we had no idea how long that would take.
The first thing Andy had to do was look for a house. We decided on Mawson Lakes only after he'd moved to SA, and now Andy had to make his way from Woodcroft to Mawson Lakes to house hunt. I'll tell you this - it wasn't a joy ride. 3 buses and 1.5 hours later, Andy would find himself in Mawson Lakes.
Some folks who were already here in Australia had moved directly to Sydney or Melbourne and told us not to waste our time in SA because of the job scene.
This blog is about our story - so get to know us and read about why I chose to write this.
And oh, 4852 mi - that's how far we moved from what I've always considered home to my new home.
