ESFG Lyon aims to be:

“A place for native English speakers and their families to network and support each other, while helping our children to maintain and develop their English language skills and develop an understanding of our culture”

Each application to join the ESFG is considered by the Committee on a case-by-case basis.

Priority for membership is given to families with at least 1 native English-speaking parent, who speaks English regularly with the child(ren). These families comprise the great majority of our members. If your family does not fit these criteria, but you would like to be considered for membership, you can complete the enquiry form below for consideration by the committee.

As English is the only language to be spoken at our regular events by all parents, caregivers and children, adults bringing children to Playgroups and other regular events must be willing and able to speak English with their children. All children of speaking age will be encouraged to speak English at our events.

Membership Fees

The membership fees are currently set at 30€ per year. All members are entitled to:

  • Attend all events that the association organises – Playgroups, Baby Playgroups, Magic Key Club, parties, talks, nights out for parents etc
  • Be part of our network on Facebook and by email, have access to the members-only part of the website (calendar etc) and being invited to take part in various ESFG events.
