What to Look for in a Student Homestay
What to look for in a Homestay
Are you planning to send your child to Singapore to study for the long term?
Are you not able to move over to Singapore to take care of your child?
Would you prefer to have an adult to care for your child to ensure that she is well taken care of and, if needed, to have someone to act in your place to provide guidance?
If your answer to these questions is yes, then a homestay would the answer to your questions.
There are a few points that you should take note when you want to send your child to Singapore for studies and also for a homestay service based in Singapore.
1. Homestay locations should be near good schools
Most homestays will be done in private housing areas, that would be landed houses or condominiums that are based around the country. There are many good landed houses areas that are quiet and private so that your child will be able to rest well and stay well. But there are a few spots in Singapore where they are located near good schools. For example Bukit Timah area. Bukit Timah is one of the best spots when it comes to educations. Top schools such as Hwa Chong Institution, Nanyang Girls School are located there. By being located near school , your child need not wake up too early to get to schools because of travelling time. More rest will be good for your growing child and also more time for studying.
2. Homestay locations should be near good entertainment area
One thing about being far from entertainment is that you will have difficulty finding out where they are, having good entertainment in the vicinity would be good as the children can take a break from studying and hang out when they are free. This allows them to let of some steam and go ahead with studies again.
3. Homestay locations should be near good food.
Bukit Timah is home to many good food places and this is a benefit. Not everyone will enjoy home cooked food every single day and having good food in the area is a plus.
3House Homestay is located near railmall, with many good food places and even a 24 hour supermarket. This makes it an excellent choice for the foodies who would like to venture out in the evening to find food or even some titbits that they can buy home to have for snacks while preparing for exams or studying hard for their test.
4. Homestay locations should be safe and quiet
Being located near the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, the surrounding environment is safe and quiet. This would help your child to balance their day out with some nature to keep them calm after long days at school
