FAQ - schools

Question:
Soon (in Nov. this year) I am coming to Montpelier with my wife and three year old daughter. I will join Montpellier University II as a postdoctrorate. I am searching for a school for my daughter, preferably an English school or at least a french school where to some extent the communication is done in English.

Could you be able to write me what are the possibilities and if you know how much ahead in time, I should apply for my daughter's admission in the school?

Thank you in advance.


Answer:
Schools ( fee paying)
Ecole antonia http://www.ecoleantonia-montpellier.com/ Maternelle
Montessori http://asso.montessori.free.fr/ Maternelle
Eridan http://www.ecole-eridan.com/ Maternelle- Secondary school
Baillargues http://www.ecole-privee-bilingue.fr/ Maternelle- Secondary school

The fees are in the region of 350€ per month, to be honest at such a young age she would adapt very well to a local French maternelle, most expat families I know send their young children to a maternelle, it is good to benefit from the experience of living in a foreign country.
None of the local French schools teach English to three year olds
