About us

We are Little Panda – a public service organisation for expats in the Czech Republic. We are dedicated to helping families find their bearings here, adapt to their new ‘home’, and create a community that will bring immense joy while making a home in a foreign land. We started in 2013 as a Facebook community in two languages – Russian and English. With over 3000 members we soon realised the need for a website to help parents find all sorts of useful information under one roof!

Our Team
