I'm not sure first hand. But I have friends who are moving away from there after only 18 months because of the high costs of living. As far as playgroups etc go, my friend had all those things with her 3 year old and they went to a great water park. As I said, only second hand information as I haven't ever lived there. But I have been there on holidays along time ago and thought it was a lovely spot!
