I carefully choose the families myself. They are ALL personnal acquaintances. Some of them are ex colleagues teachers, close friends or part of my family.
The families like to receive foreign children because it allows them (and their own children) to broaden their minds, discover new cultures and because they are proud to share their knowledge about Nantes and the French way of life.
They meet very strict criterias:
- Your child will have his/her own bed
- Your child will have the possibility to access a computer with an Internet connexion.
- At least one adult of the family will finish work before 6pm and stay at home to take care of your child and will not work on Sunday.
- At least one adult has a cellphone and is 24/7 reachable during your child’s stay.
Most of the families have accepted to send you a welcome email and photos of their family before your child arrives in France. I think it is very important to help your child project!
