This Meetup group is for English-speaking parents in Paris. Sometimes they meet for coffee, sometimes they visit a baby/child friendly venue and sometimes they have evening get togethers. The children range from newborns to 4, roughly, and the mums are from all over: British, French, American, Australian, New Zealanders and Canadian. This is an all-volunteer group, and events are proposed by mums and dads. Mums host regular morning playgroups for babies and toddlers from 0-3 years.
I find things seem to work better when theres an activity as it makes it easier to break the ice. With mums going back to work/ moving on, theres quite a high turnover but at the moment its a really nice group with meetings almost every week. (Catherine Sharp-Aouchiche)
