My family and I just moved to the Riviera from Arizona. Are there any natural parenting mamas here in the Riviera? We are living near Valbonne right now. I'm interested in starting a playgroup or joining one.
are you far from Nice ? it seems that they are some meet ups there
check their website meetup.com (i think)
+ do you speak a little french ?
try ovs (short for "on va sortir")
that will put you in touch with a myriad of people wanting to do activities ...
are there any "centre social" in your viscinity ? nearby where i live, they have some free playgroups in the afternoon
may not be natural parenting ... but a good way to meet up with other moms and widen your circle of aquaintances
can you contact a local international school in your area ? ask to put up an ad looking for moms of preschoolers ....
am sure there are loads of expat nearby Valbonne, in the lot, there's bound to be moms with pre-schoolers
now, where could they meet up ?
maybe ask the local librarian, ... she might have noticed english speaking moms coming in at regular times ...
ask to leave an ad somewhere at the library ....
+ grade school is off on Wednesdays,
you could bump into moms of preschoolers with older siblings by spending a little time in the library on a Wednesday ....
any english language bookstore ? they must have "un panneau d'affichage" ...
