What do you look for in a Guardian Family?

Obviously, you want one that offers safe surroundings and suitable accommodation. But over and above this, you want one that will make your child feel welcome and part of the family during school breaks. We understand this completely. So we take particular care in selecting our families. We interview them in their homes. We make background checks on all adult family members.

Since we see your child's academic development as our responsibility, we don't expect guardian families to get involved in decisions that affect this. We simply ask them to support your child at school functions at least once a term.

Not surprisingly, many families build up close friendships with their guests and often stay in contact with them long after they have left school.

"We joined Parents Abroad in 2008. Since then, we have enjoyed offering a second home to several of their students and have formed strong bonds and built meaningful relationships with every single one of them. Communication with Parents Abroad has always been excellent. They keep parents and families well informed of all arrangements, so that students can simply get on with their studies and enjoy the time they have with us."
