|I'm involved in organising this Summer Camp in Neihu. Basically, a group of us have bilingual children and we wanted to arrange a camp/class that was more like a Summer Camp you would attend back in the US/NZ/similar education system, at a reasonable price. We also wanted to give parents with skills some opportunity to share the skills and perhaps get back into teaching if they have been away.|

Danshui Zhongshan North Road Section1, #158, 4th FloorThis is a place where you can go and borrow toys to play there for free.
Danshui, Minsheng Road, #27, 4th Floor.Another toy library in Danshui.
Nanjing East Road Section 5, #315, 3rd FloorIt’s $200 per child & parent so a bit more expensive than other venues but it’s a nice change from Playspace and it’s good for crawlers and toddlers. You do have to make reservations ahead of time for this place but I think it’s a good option for a rainy day.
This is now a really big park with lots of flowers and open spaces for kids to run around. On rainy days, there are actually a lot of pavilions to go into. It’s free to enter the park but it costs around 50-100NT to enter the special exhibitions.
