Children Paris

Bonjour from Paris - a beautiful city offering so much to see and do for little people!

This summer, I was nannying for a high profile family in Paris! I had to keep 5 children happy and engaged during their summer holiday. After googling the usual "what to do with children in Paris" and chatting with nannies working in Paris, Space Jump in Paris kept cropping up. I can see why! The 5 children in my care had a fantastic time, jumping away their energy and letting off steam! Highly recommend.

Oui, I know, when in Paris, a visit to Disneyland is a must. I've visited many times, with & without children and have to admit, the spectacular evening firework show at the magical Disney castle, never gets old. It can take a bit of planning though, especially with 5 children! I found a fab site with lots of top tips for planning a trip to Disneyland Paris.  

The Zoo,  is extensive and very worth a visit although is quite open plan with limited shade - something to consider depending what time of year you are visiting. My charges enjoyed improving their balancing skills on some logs in a foresty area when they needed some shade / down time.

Jardin du Luxemburg is also a must visit, as is the Cat Cafe - and yes there is one in Paris & one in London too! 

Calling all our Paris based nannies, where do you enjoy taking your charges? Let's share suggestions :)
