We also have an almost 2 year old girl and another 8 months baby girl. Very upset with this system that never has room on the local creches for my girls and they also have the right to play with other kids I'd say. Any way, we live in Cagnes sur Mer and I'd love to find some friends for our little girls, so count me in. How can we move forward?Vic

Who would be interested in running a cooperative creche from their home?

Basically the idea is that you look after 4 children plus your own for a whole day and then you have 4 days a week secure in the knowledge that one of the other 4 family parents are looking after your child with a maximum group size of 5.  Costs would be minimal or possibly non-existant.  Personal legal responsibility would be covered by all parents having equal membership of a non-profit "1901 Association".  If things worked out well, maybe the Association could go as far as "employing" a young helper so when it was your turn, you'd have another pair of hands to assist.

E-mail if you are interested as I'm helping to create such a network of high-touch, sensitive caring parents.  Doesn't need to be Anglophone - all languages and cultures very welcome.

I would be interested in this information too as I am also looking for a creche for my 2 yo son.  I share your concerns about finding children for him to socialize with and also I want to return to my job part-time.  I've looked all around and haven't had any luck thus far.  My local is booked solid and won't even accept calls.  I've been on the waiting list in other villages for 6 months now, but with little hope.  In the meantime, I take my son to the assorted playgroups.  Perhaps this might be a temporary option?

Good luck to you!
