Hi Mamas!
I may need to be in France this summer for six weeks for work. (We would be in Paris). Would I be able to find a daycare that would take my son for just the six weeks? He will be almost 2.5 years at that point. In addition, any tips for relocating with a little one? Things to do in Paris with a child? Good books to read to him beforehand? (Good books for me to read about traveling/living in Paris with a child)?
Thanks all!
Michele

You won't be able to put him in any of the City of Paris daycares - you would need a phone or electric bill to prove your address - and anyway they wouldn't have space. But there are some good international Montessori daycares - like the one at the American Church (The Bilingual Montessori of Paris). Here's a list. I would call (or find the website) and find out if they'll take your ds for 6 weeks. Of course, these are all private with tuition.

There are a million things to do with kids in Paris. Just buy a good guide book like Lonely Planet, and you'll find plenty to do. Also buy the Officiel du Spectacle once you're there - a little blue magazine. There's a section in the back with anything and everything to do with kids (puppet shows, parks, zoos, etc. etc. etc.)

Yep, ParisMama (hi there, how're ya doing?) is right about daycare... it is really hard to find daycare in Paris...

One good place to contact (if you speak French) is the "Maison de l'enfance" (among other things, they manage/centralise requests for daycare providers outside of the centers) of the arrondissement where you'll be living... If you like, feel free to send me a PM and I'll contact them for you to see if they have any ideas.

As for things to do, this site gives a pretty complete run-down on stuff: cityjunior.com.

Feel free to PM me if you just want to chat about Paris etc.

Cheers!

HI Mamas! Thanks so much for the info. I don't speak french (only Spanish and English), so I would love to see what you could find out. My son (adopted) has a birth brother living in the city and we can't wait to see him!
hugs,
Michele

Hi, MamaMichele,
I'd love to call the Maison de l'enfance for you but I need to know where in Paris you'll be living since there is one per arrondissement and only cover information for their specific arrondissements...
If you have an address already (or when you get one), feel free to send me a PM so I can call the right office.
Good luck,
Ione
