It would be an understatement to say that when parents move with their children there are about a million things to do. Maybe not technically “one million” but it sure feels like it. Once of the challenges parents have when moving with their children is prioritizing what is most important. Chief among parent concerns when moving or relocating with their family is high quality education in their new home.
The overall aim of the Moving Families Initiative® is to serve parents who are moving with their children with a particular focus on the challenges kids face with moving by providing them access to, among other things, a high quality education. Certified MFI Preferred Real Estate Agents seek to assist parents with this goal.
What is high quality education? Opinions vary widely from class size to teacher credentials to home-school communication to statewide test scores. Children spend anywhere from six to eight hours, or even more, at school. It is their “work place” as well as the place where they practice social skills, form friendships and learn how to get along. Early childhood settings are especially important for early brain and social-emotional development. Parents are often overwhelmed by the vast amount of information available. They are hard-pressed to determine which school in or around their new neighborhood would be the best fit for their child, sight unseen.
The MFI Connectivity Platform provides parents with a one-stop shop to meet the ever-changing needs families face when moving. One of many valuable resources on the site is the Neighborhood Discovery Tool, found under the SERVICES tap at www.movingfamiliesinitiative.com. Parents can not only research schools in the area to which they are moving, they have access to information about their new community, cost of living, financial calculators and the Personal Move Planner.
