PERSONALIZED SCHOOL GUIDANCE FOR RELOCATING FAMILIES

One of the most important yet more difficult parts of relocating with children is, of course, understanding all the school options in your new community. Many times the move is on short notice and falls within the middle of a school year. Luckily, the Seattle area is home to many high quality public schools, including many nationally recognized choice programs as well as dual-language options.  Seattle and the Eastside areas are also very accessible to a broad selection of academically challenging secular and faith-based private schools. 

As your school consultant, I will spend time getting to know your children's learning styles and interests as well as your educational preferences. I will provide an overview of the educational landscape and help you identify schools that match your children's needs and interests.My goal is to make every family's move as easy and efficient as possible by providing tailored, thoroughly researched guidance on preschool through high school options. 

If you are interested in independent schools, I will help you navigate the admissions process, contact schools to inquire about vacancies and organize appointments for your family to visit schools even during the summer months. Our work together will result in a tailored report that identifies not just one right school, but all viable options for your children.

LIFE IN SEATTLE

It is well known that one of the best ways to help your children adjust quickly is to have them get involved with a class, playgroup or sports team soon upon arrival.  I have assisted families in finding everything from a French class for native speakers, to Irish dance classes, chess programs, summer camps, competitive swim team programs and music lessons.  Whether you want information on daycare, playgrounds, toddler classes, youth athletic leagues or summer camps, I am happy to steer you in the right direction. 

NEIGHBORHOOD FINDING YOUR FIT

I am available to partner with your real estate agent, as the process works best if you are making housing and schooling decisions in tandem.  By providing your real estate agent with information on individual schools that meet the needs of your family, you will be able to fully understand your housing and school options.
