International Community School...very close to Clementi MRT

Nicole, International Community School is 2 bus stops from the Clementi MRT station (green line), in its convenient western Singapore location, and close to Holland Village.

Family Movers

...and some have had a different experience. I was quite pleased with the service provided by Family Movers and would recommend them to anyone. They moved me speedily, and ahead of schedule, and everything arrived in good condition. Communications were good...both ways, throughout. :)

Car rental....

Yes, my friend just found a car to rent for $500 per month...through an owner. ...and all she has to pay for is the gas! There are people with cars they're not driving...and would rather rent/lease if possible. ...ask around...check the boards or newspapers. Ask the people on this forum. :)

Finding a house from afar

Claire...welcome to Singapore! You're almost here. Yes, it is difficult dealing with agents from across an ocean, and sounds like yours is not communicating with you enough...I'd change...some use multiples when searching. The one who closes on the house or apartment that you like gets the commissio...

Church For Children!

Don't give up! You're right...that's just not the place for you. You tried one...maybe that place is too large for your family and your needs at this time in your life. Try, try, try until you find the right fit. We tried 7 churches before we found home, and for the past months have been at Leng Kwa...

ICS

Yes, of course a quality education is offered at International Community School...but the child's attitude will determine their altitude. Our top graduates pick the colleges they want to go to.

Very affordable for you

I agree...your income will allow you to pretty much live as you want, provided you don't have a lot of debt to maintain. And at International Community School...the monthly cost for your 2 children (5 & 7) would be less than $4,000 per month ...for both...if you choose to use the monthly payment...
