Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!
Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.
It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.
With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.
But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Bi-lingual/English kindergarten in Lisbon
Hi all, I'm looking for a kindergarten for my 2 year old ahead of our move to Lisbon in the summer. Does a bi-lingual or English Montessori school exist in Lisbon? I'm not getting very far with my Google searches. Perhaps there's a good bi-lingual or English kindergarten that's not Montessori? I will consider that too. Thank you in advance for your help.
Hello Kitty and welcome to the forum.
I'm not able to personally recommend anything but for starters or in the absence of any other responses, this link may be of use to you.
Maybe a bit late, but very good info for anyone in the future:
I have no official link, but am just so happy we found this place for our daughter and now feel like part of the family 🙂
Queen Elizabeth's School
My daughter went there after doing her first year infants in the UK (in our 'gap year' there)
She is still there and loves it to bits, doing really well
We love it too
Lessons in Portuguese in the morning, in then in English (with native speakers) in the pm plus others (e.g. primary science) so they have two class teachers.
Tennis and science and English clubs included in price
Looks old school UK, but has the warmness of the Portuguese
Huge majority are Portuguese kids, with a fair number of internationals
Reasonable fees (which also means that money isn't everything in the playground and at the school gates ...)
Creche 12 to 36 months
'Infantil' 3, 4 & 5 years
'Básico' up to year 4
Catholic but very moderate and teach excellent values (my only initial worry - completely OK)
Ex-pupils have a great reputation when they move on to big school
Everyone I have met who went there (some are now over 60) say they only have good memories 🙂
