I would love to hear from any parents who have their children at either of the two local Montessori schools (Les Pouces Verts in Valbonne/Mouans-Sartoux or Le Jardin de Soleils in Grasse). We are trying to choose between the two for the fall, and would like to speak with some current parents before making the decision. Thanks, in advance, for any insight you can give...

We are living in Mougins for 3 months this summer and are looking for English speaking swimming lessons for a 4 year old and maybe an 18 month old. Don't mind one to one or group lessons. Also any playgroup or summer camp nearby? Any suggestions or recommendations?Dee

Hello, I am expecting a baby and he will be born in Monaco, me being British and my husband being French, we want to declare him as British only. He will be declared at the Mairie here in MC. I was wondering if it was worth doing a consular registration or shall I just wait and apply for a British passport directly? Any advices and past experiences in similar case?! tks

We moved to Cogolin in Sept and my then 5yr old was allocated a place at one of the 4 local schools in GS Maternelle.He is now 6 and due to start CP in September. I was under the impression that he would move along with the rest of his class up into the next section of the school that he is presently at. (He has finally made friends and is grasping the language and is very happy)However, his teacher has just told me that because of where we live - which is the same address as when we first enrolled him - he has to go to another school.This is causing much distress as he has already been uprooted from England and had to cope with starting French school and making new friends.Is there anything I can do do you think? Is it worth going to the Mairie? As far as I am aware he is the only child being made to do this.Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Bonjour, My wife and I are looking for a babysitter for approx. one night per week to look after our 17 month year old son. They must speak very good english, and be available one evening per week, hopefully a Friday or Saturday. We would prefer to be given a recommendation from another ex-pat who uses such a babysitter, but this is not essential. References are a bonus too. Merci bien

I believe SNCF offer an 'unaccompanied minor' service. Does anyone know about this (has anyone used it?). I can't find anything about it on their website but the website is not exactly user friendly. Ideally I'd like to send my son to St. Malo or Rennes or somewhere in that part of France, and back of course, for about 10 days in August. He will be just over 12 and I don't want him to travel alone even though he is well travelled and speaks French fluently. If there is no alternative then I will travel with him but that means two return trips.

I have searched for this horse online, but am having no luck. I'm hoping someone might be able to help, as I would love to get this horse for my daughter's 1st b-day. It's a small horse, on a metal frame with springs and removable wheels. The horse has a furry cover and a removable seat. Kind of a 'grow-with-me' item. Converts from walker to bouncy horse. My 1st daughter had one & she absolutely LOVED it! (Her 1st b-day gift, too.) Thanks SO much!-Kim

We are an English/Norwegian family living in Eze Bord de Mer and have a 7 year old daughter at the local school. I wondered if there were other children of about the same age in the village who might like to meet to play from time to time?
