The Montessori school
Our 4 year old goes to the English Language Montessori school and we are very pleased with his progress. Our daughter, who is now in the French system, went to "Miss Green's" as soon as we arrived and she made excellent progress in the 18 months that she was there. It made the transition into the French system less traumatic as it might have been, if we had put her straight in when we arrived.

My son will be going to the Montessori school starting in September. We are thrilled about the school, but we have issues finding someone to care for him after school since my current nounou will be moving away from the region this summer. Is there a parents' association I could maybe contact to see if I could share a babysitter or nounou with other parents? Any other suggestions?
Please let me know...

Yes I would gladly appreciate your help.
I am looking to find a babysitter or a nounou to pick up after school my 3 year old son, Axel, at the Montessori on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Ideally we would want someone to bring him home to our house in La Chaussée in Gouvieux and watch him till 18:30-19:00. In addition, we need some help during the vacation periods.
Since we are looking for only 8-9 hours a week it is difficult to find a nounou willing to take Axel just a few hours 3 days a week. Therefore, I was wondering if there are Montessori parents who would be interested in sharing their babysitter / nounou if she has the capability for taking on one more kid.
Any other suggestions (are there any association who take kids after school)?
Please let me know
Thanks a lot
I have sent an email out asking them to contact you directly. It might be an idea to talk tot the school as well and see if they have anyone on their books to help. I dont know of any after school activities. I know the French school have an after school system for working parents but this is obviously for their children. It might be worth talking to the Mairie in Gouvieux about their after school facilities.
Best of luck and let me know how you get on.

Montessori is a scientific method for educating Daycare children innovative that is focused on the key developmental stages that all children move through on their way to adulthood. In each of these stages, children are in a sensitive period for learning different skills and activities that will help them reach their next developmental milestone. Doctor Maria Montessori believed that if children were provided with the opportunities to explore and practice these skills, they would make extraordinary progress. This is why the Montessori method of education has been designed around the unique development needs of the child. The Montessori curriculum, classroom structure, and learning materials have been tested, refined, evaluated, and proven across age groups, countries, and cultures to support and nurture the full developmental potential of the child.
