How much does one pay an evening babysitter. They won't be required to do very much as the children will already be asleep, they just need to sit. Any ideas on the going rate? Thanks

I am going to paris and the hotel which we can stay in does not have a cot for our 12 month old baby. I have a pack and play, very heavy and not really ideal for traveling by plane/taxi/metro etc...w/ luggage and baby. Does anyone have a sleep solution? Does any one have a easy to travel with cot they can lend me? Thank You! I have helped many mothers on anglo info and hope one can help me now. Leslie

French lad on Riviera needs to practice his spoken English and requires a host English-speaking family living on Riviera with children of similar age, to host him for one week during next holidays. In exchange for fee or for their child to spend week in this French family, in compensation for them to practice their French in return. It is too complicated trying to get a family in the UK and having to fly him over, so I thought a local solution would be ideal. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Hi All, My son is 17, has lived in France all his life and is applying to university.  English university fees are absurd however I heard that Scottish universities are much more reasonable.  Can anyone clarify ?

Hi, We are a family with 4 kids moving from Australia to France (near Grasse) at the beginning of 2016. We will be putting our younger 3 kids into a local French school and wondered if anyone knew if there is a French high school with an English/Bilingual section in that area as we would love our 12yr old to learn French but we don't think he will manage in a purely French school. We would also like to get involved in some sports or local clubs, if anyone knows what sports are played in the area please do let us know. Many thanks Delia

Hi, I have recently started a French course that is 9-12 Mon to Fri... My almost 3 year old daughter is with a babysitter (who is fabulous!) but we would love for my daughter to have some company! i have struggled with the crèche/nanny system so thought this was a good alternative but unfortunately she has no friends to play with!   If anyone has a child around the same age and is interested please let me know.... We are in Antibes... Cheers, Alice

How is it possible that here in Nice Dogs are allowed into parks where little children play , Every morning on our walk to school there is the ' Dog club ' in the park comprising of about 8/10 dogs and owners ( Nice port area ) , the dogs are freely allowed to run around and obviously doing their buisness in the grassy areas , I personally find this appauling , surely something can and must be done about this , any ideas welcome

Does anyone know the catchment area for the CIV College in Valbonne/Sophia?  We live in Biot and the closest College is Eganaude, but heard that the International Section is not great there.  So, the CIV is the next best option - but, we will probably have to move house.  Any comments would be brilliant and very helpful.  Thanks ..

I've always been confused about this subject. All advice welcome. Included with my household contents insurance I can ask for (free) an 'attestation d'assurance scolaire et extra scolaire' which ensures my children for 'responsabilité civile vie privée' Is this sufficient for school? Does it cover my child if : The teacher accidentally trips him up and he breaks his leg? Another child punches him and he goes to hospital? If my son breaks a window at school? My son hurts another pupil (not that the darling would, of course...) I told them my son is going to have a few ski lessons with an 'association' and they sent me this 'attestation', is it really sufficient?
