Helping English-Speaking Parents Thrive in France

Message is a diverse, supportive community of English-speaking families living in and around Paris with one key goal:

to help each other feel at home.

We come from more than 60 countries and speak over 20 other languages. We share tips about parenting and life at all ages and stages in France, get together

for different events (virtual for now), and truly support one another.

Message - By Parents, For Parents

Mike & Zheng

BABY MINA'S DAD

How to have a baby in France in English?! Yep, I Googled this. We had just moved to Paris & everything was new from finding doctors & childcare to parenting … all in a foreign language! Message helped us make friends & get answers to all the day-to-day questions.

Katie & Motty

THEO, ELEANOR & MIA'S PARENTS

The absolute best way for English-speaking families to get integrated, get advice, make friends and generally figure out life as a parent here.  Essential for new and longtime Parisians alike. One of the best things about living in Paris!

Robynne

ADRIEN & LÉA'S MOM

I was so grateful for the support from my Message peeps when we went through the grueling getting-into-college process.

Tara

MONA'S MAMA

In a career transition when we moved here, the entrepreneurs group helped me keep momentum on my professional goals, while new friends helped me navigate life in my new city.

See you around the neighborhood!
