Aide-Maman Scheme
aide-maman with children

Could you make use of an extra pair of hands during the summer holidays?
Our French summer holiday mother’s helps - ‘aide-maman’ - are girls of 17 - 19 years old, studying English, who have chosen to do work experience in England.
They come for 3 - 5 weeks on a live-in, work-for-keep, work experience scheme.

They will help a busy family in a number of ways in return for no more than your hospitality - playing with the children, walks, supervising activities, bathtime and bedtime, reading stories, tidying toys, babysitting, helping with lightweight chores and preparing meals, and helping your children if they are learning French.

This service is completely FREE but only available to mothers at home.
Working mothers should apply for an au pair.

“Thank you for sending us such lovely girls to help for the summer. They were both a pleasure to have - helpful, kind, polite and good company.
It was an enormous help to me and we all had a more relaxed and fun summer.”
