    Hi Satty
    Good to know that another fellow indian is coming here to Edmonton. I moved here abt 6 months back.Pls look for apartments ONLY in the SW/SE part of Edmonton.Other areas are not safe at all. The Millwoods area in the south is lively and vibrant and has lot of indians..Avoid the north and downtown areas.

    There are public schools in every community,but i guess ur son is still young for kindergarten. As far as I know there aren't many playschoos/ preschools here or at least u cant be sure that there will be one near your apartment area. I had to do a lot of research to get my son into preschool.When r u plannig to come here since admissions are already over for the academic year.

    Let me know if u need any other details, glad to help.

    Deepa

    You can look for apartments in the south side. That is where the Indian community is. I see a lot of south Indians near Southgate, millwoods, century park, summer side, Laurel, Meadows. You can looks for apartments or houses for rent. The rental market is good in Edmonton, so you will not find many vacant apartments. If you are planning, it would be better to contact the apartment/ individual early and book it.


    For schools, you wouldnt find any pre-schools year. It is 90% daycares here. If you want you can put your kid in half day pre-schools that are available (not many as far as I know). Here kids are eligible to go to Kindergarten when they are four. I think they should have their birthday before march of that school year to be eligible. There are a lot of Catholic schools. There is also a ABC Headstart program which accepts kids from 3 years.


    Hope this helps :) Let me know if you need any other information.

    Looks like QM Park is on the north side. It would be a difficult commute from the south side during winters.
