I have a 3 year old and 8 month old sons and it would be nice for them to also hear mummy's language.

I do know a Finnish mum locally but her dd is now 15, but I also know she used to take her dd every other Saturday to a Finnish 'school' (more like summer-camp activities) in Oxford, so she could interact with other Anglo-Finnish children.

I just don't want to start driving an hour each way to Oxford.

That's why they only went every other Saturday. Might be worth finding out if it's still running, going once or twice and seeing if you can find any other families who are from Swindon or nearby, and setting up an informal 'splinter group' - meeting up for playdates etc.

Good luck.

I'm aware of all the Finnish schools in Oxford, Bristol and London.

My husband works late during the week and weekends are 100% family time.
I'm not interested wasting a whole day going to Oxford or any other place. I rather spend it with my 3 boys smile
