Canadian family with 2 kids moving to Singapore -help stay

Postby Jenish » Sat, 02 Feb 2013 2:29 pm

My husband, myself and 2 kids (6 years and 3 years) are moving to Singapore next month. I've been given varying advice on what are the 'best' areas and couldn't find an existing post that suits our requirements. I really appreciate advice, taking into consideration the below.

+ Married Canadian couple, 2 kids (6 years and 3 years)
+ Budget $3 - $5k per month - looking for 3 bedroom at least 1200 sq. ft.
+ Work at Raffles Square so looking for a reasonable (not too long) commute
+ Easy access to good schools and peaceful neighborhood
+ Like to exercise outdoors so prefer near park or water
+ Comfortable homes with spacious rooms
+ Walking/cycling distance to school, malls, cafes, restaurants would be great

Appreciate all and any suggestions!

You should first read a bit about schooling system in Singapore and decide whether you are going to place your kids in a local school or an international one.

+ Walking/cycling distance to school, malls, cafes, restaurants would be great

will only happen if you manage to find something near the school you manage to enroll your kids to.

Also

+ Comfortable homes with spacious rooms
does not really go alone with
+ Budget $3 - $5k per month - looking for 3 bedroom at least 1200 sq. ft.

In short, start with the school, all the rest will be secondary.
