Hi, can anyone recommend a good, experienced child minder in the Mandelieu area? Would prefer someone that looks after children in their own home and preferably french and english speaking but if only one language that's fine.

I was wondering whether anyone knew of a nappy/diaper service in the region? (This would be an organisation that takes the dirty cloth nappies and washes them for you, returning them a week or so later). Thanks for any tips.

No cleaning involed or cooking. Any suggestions as to how much I should pay her per hour??? Thanks, Cylivia

A young friend who recently had a baby is looking for mother and baby groups or even just a young mum who's interested in meeting up and sharing tips. She's bilingual and lives in the Valbonne area. Can travel. Email me if you're interested or if you know anyone who's interested and I'll pass the message on. Thanks.

I would like to hear from women who have had babies in Cannes. Did you go to the hospital or use the only existing clinic? What were your experiences? Were you able to have any kind of birth plan during your labor?   Also, can anyone tell me how one registers your child for the cresh? Where do you go and what papers do you take with you? Does anyone have any experieces with creshes in Cannes? Also, are there any other mothers to be in cannes currently who will be delivering in February or march?   Thank you for your help and look forward to hearing from you.

My daughter is 8 years old and really sweet, I am just looking for someone to look after her in the evening when we are going out, and sometime during the day or week end. French is essential as she doesn't speak much english.Romane

Hello, I was wondering if anyone on this forum might be able to offer some advice or has experience of the problems posed by the different age cutoffs of year groups when transferring from French schools back to English schools. Problem:I am in the process of returning to the UK.My youngest son is currently in a French Secondary college 6ieme.As he is born in December, the school in England has said that heshould return to Year 6 in Primary and not go into Year 7 Secondary. (French school age cut off being age on 1st Jan. and English school cutoff being age on 1st Sept.) Understandably my son is not keen on this and more importantlyit will mean that he will be 2 years behind his brother (born July) ratherthan one year. The fact that the UK and France have different cut-off dates for year groups is not the pupils fault but it has a direct impacton them if they move between France and the UK. Many thanks in advance for any advice or experience of this. A pity there is no European standard for this. Anyone who knows where I might be able to get some EC advice on this would also be useful.
