Hi, I have a 15-month old who'll be going to the creche one day per week and to an assistent maternelle or nanny 2 days per week. I'm trying to figure out what to do to get the aid from the CAF. Can anyone help me, or recommend someone who can, with figuring out the CAF and implications for childcare? I don't understand much French, and even after looking at the translated CAF website couldn't really make heads or tails of it. Thanks for any advice, Sarette

I have a friend coming to visit and she has an eleven month old baby. Can anyone give me advice regarding the use of baby seats in cars and taxis - is it compulsory to use them? Should the parents provide a seat whilst travelling in a taxi or do taxi firms supply them? Should I need to get a baby car seat is there a good baby shop in the Antibes area? Thanks

Hi there, Can anyone give some advice on where and how to register for a Creche or Halte Garderie place in Antibes area I've heard they are pretty full and its hard to get a place but I don't know where to start. This would be for a newborn after Mum returns to work at 3 months post birth Thanks
Hi , My son will be starting cp next year and I would like for him to be in an international type school. (for the english language). The international school in Garbejare won't take him because he isn't in their bounderies. It is also quite far out.We live in the centre of Antibes. I've also noted a new private school in Sophia. I wonder if they have bus service ? Is there a closer option ?kind regards.

Many thanks
Its for a friend travelling alone with baby and buggy, well you know what it's like to bring a seat too, it would be a huge task so if I can borrow or hire one - I may be able to help you sell it later, though I really don't want to buy as I might get broody ha ha!it's for week commencing 5th Feb for about 5 days..I guess one that hasn't been in an accident before..CheersSparkles Out.
Can someone explain all the different options for childcare please. I have a baby daughter of 5 months and would like her to go to a creche or something soon so she can socialise with other children not just mum. What are the differences between a creche, maternelle, garderie, nonou etc and are there other options. I am no longer working and have seen on some postings this limits the options - is his true? Also, looking in and around the Mandelieu area if anyone has any recommendations please.
Hi We have a holiday appartment in Mandelieu and are there for most school holidays. We have a daughter who's nearly 5 and it would be great to meet up with other mums too. Ella gets a bit bored without playmates. Also, if anyone can recommend a good babysitter in the area, that would be really helpful as have been searching for a while. We're next in mandelieu 18th Feb 07.Mrs Gillian Pears

Hi I'm thinking of sending my 12 year old here. He's been in the French system for five years and I think the Montessorri method of teaching would be of benefit to him.Would love to hear thoughts from anyone who sends their kids there - is it a good school? Any drawbacks etc etc.Thanks!
