Thanks SJ.  I have a question for yjme.  I am confused about what assistantes maternelle.  What is it exactly?  You said 'day care'.  Does that mean it is a public service offered here in France? 

Thanks for any clarification.........

Babysitters usually charge between 8 and 10 Euros an hour, depending on the number of children, the time of day and the person.  In fact, I've heard of some charging a little less than that, and I've been quoted considerably more by others.  If you found regular work and a regular babysitter, you might be able to work out a deal that suited you both...........

How much does something like that cost?  Plus I live in a very small place, so no room for anyone to stay over for the night.

Just to say that assistantes maternelle are for mainly full or part time all year round day care for children usually in their own house......not quite the same thing as babysitting in the evenings.

Had you thought about employing an au pair?
