Hello -  We are a German/Canadian couple looking for playdates for our son who is 2.5 years old. Since most of the French kids are either at the creche or the maternelle full-time I have troubles finding moms/parents with kids that are available during the week. I am a freelancer working from home most of the time and looking after my son three days a week. It would be great to meet up with other moms/dads/parents who have toddlers. Please get in touch if you are interested. Sonia

Hi  Our family have recently moved to Lyon for 6 months, and my 11 yo daughter who has brought her own fllute and music (Grade 2), would love to continue with some lessons. Our French is on a steep learning curve and improving - albeit slowly. Would anyone know of a private flute teacher available who can also speak some English? We live in 6th arrondisement. I would also be keen to meet up with any families/ mums out there who might be free for a coffee/chat. Hope to hear from you, BT

Is anyone interested in yoga classes for kids Friday or Wednesday afternoons?  I found a couple different spaces to rent, one in Lyon 4 and the other in Lyon 2.  I want to offer yoga classes for children in English however I'm curious as to which days, times and districts interest the parents of Lyon first. I spent nearly two years as an au pair in France and two summers as an au pair in Italy.  I am also a yoga teacher, completing both a 500+ hour Yoga Alliance yoga teacher training course and an additional 200 hour Yoga Alliance teacher training course.  I have taught yoga around Asia, including assistant teaching a Yoga Alliance certified teacher training course, and I have recently moved to Lyon and see that there is a demand for Friday afternoon activities.   If this something that you may be interested in, feel free to reply to this post or send me a message so that I can add you to my contact list.

Hi all I'm wondering whether anyone has any first hand experience of state schools in and around the Lyon area. We are considering a move from a different part of France and are really not happy with the attitude of the teachers in the schools around here. There seems to be no level of pastoral care over here at all, children are not nurtured nor treated as an individual. We know of work being thrown at children's faces when it hasn't been done properly; it's Victorian on a good day. We are considering the international school in Lyon, but perhaps also a state school if we feel things are different over there. Our daughter is in maternelle at the moment but will probably be moving up to CP as we move to Lyon.  Any advice or sharing of your experiences would be great. Thanks

Hi  We are a belgian family but have live 7 years in SA. We have 3 kids that only received south african education and therefor are more fluent in english and can't write and read in french. We will probably move to Lyon in July. We need to find everything like house, where to live, schools etc. We will have to choose a good public school as not sure we wil be able to afford the international one. Our kids play tennis, hockey, soccer and of course rugby and cricket ;-) We have a 9 years old boy, a 7 years old boy and a daughter of 6 years old. So any advises about Lyon are more than welcome as we have to start from scratch ! What I know is that we must find housing in the East as my husband will work close to the airport and I will porbably work in town. Please share any good advises or how to find good accomodation or schools as the web does not seem to offer that much information. Thanks a lot for your help ... I would really appreciate it Cheers Caro
