View Full Version : vancouver island mamas- degree of crunchiness?

Hey mamas-
We're likely moving to the island- Victoria area. Just wanted to get a feel for the degree of "crunchiness" I can expect. I imagine babywearing, cd-ing etc folks left right and centre.

How do I find like minded mamas- online forums? playgroup clubs?
I am also a childbirth educator/doula/breastfeeding advocate.

I imagine island life to be a place where my lifestyle is a fairly common- at least not as uncommon as in central alberta. Would this be accurate?

Also, could any of you recommend an awesome preschool for my ds? Are there any homeschool groups?

Thanks in advance.

I'm north of Victoria, but have lived there. Anything goes... you won't get looked at weird for wearing your baby or CD!!

There's a website: kidsinvictoria.com that has an active forum that you might get more info on groups, preschools, playdates, etc.

I'm also north of Vic, but go there frequently. I think you'll find your own group of like-minded parents to mesh with and definitely suggest checking out kidsinvictoria.com for their forums. They're decently active and have play dates etc. all the time. :) You'll love the Island. I'd never live anywhere else.

Strong start is also a great option for finding other Mommas and kids :)
