Schools in Abu DHabi and tuition fees (Abu Dhabi)

Hi All,

We are in the process of accepting a job in Abu Dhabi and will potentially be moving end of this year. We have a 3 year old and a 6 year old (currently finishing up his Kindergarten year in Sydney, Australia). I have started looking at potential school options for them in Abu Dhabi and it seems all education options are excessively expensive ranging from $18K-25K per child (considering public schools in Australia are free, however, daycares are expensive but not nearly as much). Am I missing something or is it really that expensive there? We have education assistance included in the salary package, but it doesn't seem to be enough (?). How would that be calculated and would we need to know what basis to negotiate on? I am starting to get very nervous about the move. Please hep clary and o share your experience on how you found the education options there and what schools I should really concentrate on? Thanks
