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.

Hi all! We recently moved from Australia to Antibes for a cultural experience and to learn some French. We have settled our 5 year old in a local maternelle but are finding it hard to find daycare for our 2 year old. Does anyone know the best options for a couple of days a week of French daycare/ or with a nanny?

I have always had a great passion for elderly people and took the opportunity to be a live-in carer  for  a lady of 85 with fibrosis of the lungs for the last 14 months in France. She passed away at the end of November but this experience has convinced me that I would like to pursue live-in caring,  as my profession .  I am a single person , in good health, with no particular family ties which gives me the opportunity to  be able to do long term live-in care work. I love making life easier and more comfortable for older people.   I will always help the elderly to cross the road , get in or out of a vehicle or put their coat on. My well being depends on me making older people comfortable and happy. I am prepared to undergo any necessary training and  I would be interested in any live-in carer position, but would prefer  long term positions. I have a full valid driver's licence.  I also have  a valid French residence visa until September .  I would prefer to work in Nederland or UK but am prepared to go anywhere in Europe. I would be available to start in a new position immediately .

Hi, I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant and the gyno has just informed us after my blood test that I have a higher risk in having a baby with genetic disorder.  I heard that one procedure is free and the other we have to pay for but frankly I don't care about the money, I just want to know which procedure is more accurate? I believe that the CVS is done earlier in which case I would probably go for, so is this the one I have to pay for?  Any views on this? Thanks in advance Mel

I'm about to apply for British passports for my 2 children born in France (I was born in UK) - should I be concerned that my children are already on my French wife's passport? The Embassy in Paris have asked me to send a copy of their French ID, and as they don't have ID cards, their only official French ID is their Mum's passport. I'm just concerned that they might not want to issue UK passports to people who are already on a French passport. Thanks in advance for any insight on this.

Help!! My daughter will be starting 6eme at college in September. We have had an offer accepted on a house in Le Bar sur loup, but it is by no means secured yet. Today I received a letter from her current school in Mouans sartoux asking me to confirm where we will be living for the rentree. I don't know what to do, ideally I don't want her to have to move schools mid way through. Thanks!

Does anyone know of a supplier for a childrens slide. There are numerous little ones available. What I am looking for is trough slide without ladder to be fixed to an existing frame, the type seen in municipal play grounds, it should be in GRP or polyester as France calls it. I seem to be able to find them in the USA but not here in France. Any help would be appreciated.T G
