Hi there, my husband and I with our 5 and 7 year old are considering moving to the area next year. We like the idea of being near the coast and like Croix des Gardes/Mougins area. What are the primary schools like in Cannes? We think we will send our children to the local school so they can speak French. Are there English children in them? Also the primary school in mougins?Any thoughts/opinions/experiences gratefully received!

Hi, I am french and I would like that my 5 years old daughter will learn to speak english with english people. She more or less understand english (she studies in an english Montessori school) but she does not speak, so I had the idea to propose that during these english lessons, I could give french or math or piano lesson to your kids :-) I am engineer with a master degree in Math, I worked at Sophia for a worlwide company and I studied Piano for 15 years. If you like this idea, just contact me: +33615295329 Best Regards, Caroline

I am looking for an aupair/nanny/mothershelp for a lovely family in Nice. After over 3 years of work with them I got to leave to London for my studies. They have two wonderful children boy 5,5 and girl 4 years old. They need a help just part time. Which inludes 2 mornings drop to school, two afternoons pick up from school, one half day (Wednesday), one or two babysitting a week. The best candidat would be native english speaker with knowladge of french and be able to drive the kids to and from school which is about 20 min away from home. Someone who has an experience with working with kids previously. There is a possibility of an aupair position which would include free separated accomodation in their house, but they would need more time to got to get to know that person better. If any question, I'd be happy to answer. Start as soon as possible for a period of about 1 year.  Best regards

Since this is a a community of expats, and mostly families moving abroad, I thought this should be brought to attention. Please read below, and if you have any further inquiries, message me.The Hague Convention of 1980 is perhaps the most important legal issue for international families that most of us are only vaguely aware of. Simply put, it is intended to protect children from international child abduction.But for some parents, the implications of the Hague Convention can have unintended and devastating consequences: leaving them trapped in a foreign country with little to no support, while fighting lengthy and expensive court battles. We talk to Roz Osborne, founder of GlobalARRK, which stands for Global Action on Relocation and Return with Kids, about the hurtful side of the Hague Convention. We cover:How Roz ended up stuck in Portugal, unable to take her kids home to the UK, after her relationship ended.How the Hague Convention can sometimes end up punishing vulnerable parents, mostly mothers, living abroad.How GlobalARRK began and what it does.What changes to the Hague Convention GlobalARRK is petitioning for.What is a pre-emigration contract and why it might be the most important thing you can do before moving abroad.How to support GlobalARRK and get involved.Disclaimer: The content in this episode a personal story and not intended as legal advice. We urge all parents who to seek counsel from a qualified international family law professional when necessary. http://www.amsterdam-mamas.nl/stories/when-international-family-law-gets-messy

I know it's harder for older people to move, especially if they do not always have moral or physical support. I wanted to let you know of a charity called Sunny Bank Association that is a retirement home and social centre that provides financial and social support to the Anglophone elderly in the South-East of France. If you know of anyone wanting to move here or possibly someone already living here but needing support do have a look at www.sunny-bank.org

Hi mummies, My 13 months old daughter and I used to go to the baby and mummy group at kiddoland before summer. We had a great time and I am thinking about going back there. I know kidooland just opened back so I guess the group isn't formed yet. I see on this forum there are plenty of new mums who arrived in the area and are wondering what to do and where to meet other mummies with babies. So if you are interrested we could all meet at Kidooland on Monday morning. It's starting at 9.30 and finishing at 11. I guess I'll be there with my daughter Emily around 9.45. All infos regarding direction to kidooland must be on there website I guess : www.kidooland.com Hope to see you there.
