Who's ready to learn a game that has been around since the 1600s?
Originating in England, Cribbage soon made its way to the Colonies as an easy way for sailors and fishermen to wile away the hours at sea.
Normally played with two people, the game can be modified to play with three or four people as well, and we'll learn the rules for them all. Two times the fun!
The games will be held the second Wednesday of the month from 11.00-13.00, and the fourth Tuesday of the month from 19.30-21.30.

We all want our children to have a sense of belonging. When you move countries with them, they grow up in a culture that is not our own. It may be increasingly difficult for them to answer, “Where are you from?” In this talk with Monica Shah Zeeman, early years expert, learn how to prepare your children for a move and talk about culture with your children. Monica will also give us practical tips to help our children cope with such transitions as well as mindful ways to create support networks for your family. Let your child thrive in multilingual Zurich and learn ways to help them grow up on their own terms.
