Some parents need temporary child care (garde d’enfants temporaire), especially when they intend to spend a few weeks or months in Lyon.
They should contact only professional child care providers that offer occasional baby-sitting services. They usually have qualified baby sitters who can take care of the children under and over 3 for a few hours or days per week . The baby-sitters are chosen according very strict criteria: they must be experienced baby-sitters who easily interact with the children and are aware of first-aid.
However, if you do not work in France or not not intend to hire a nanny for one year, you may not benefit from the reduction of taxes or receive the state aid.
In Lyon, there are a few child care agencies that provide temporary nannies (nounous) and the pay range can be from 15 € to 20€ per hour, or about 264 € for 16 hours a month.
If you think that the prices of the professional agencies are too expensive, you can hire a student or a teen as a temp nanny ( about 10 €/hour), but be sure that he or she is reliable.
Here are a few addresses to help you find a temporary nanny in Lyon:
