With so many different languages, cultures and activities, moving to Singapore with your kids can be a great opportunity for them to be exposed to a new and exciting lifestyle. It is one of the most popular destinations for expats in the world and is considered a cultural heartland. However, a big change like this can be difficult to navigate.

Invictus International Preschool has you covered! Here are six tips to help you make a successful start in this education, commerce and technology hub.

Prepare for the hot, humid climate
Always carry a water bottle, wear light clothes & ensure kids wear sunblock when playing outside. An island climate may be quite a change from what you’re used to and preparing ahead of time will prevent any mishaps like heatstroke.

Be open to meeting new people

Connecting with families who are familiar with your new environment can help make the transition easier. Locals and other expats are a support powerhouse. Consider joining clubs, Facebook groups or meeting parents at your children’s preschool.
Embrace the world-class education

Check out what’s on offer and research your options to find the perfect match. Read parent testimonials and book a tour of your shortlisted schools to get a firsthand experience of the campuses, classes and staff.

Prioritise where you live
Where you live is one of the most important aspects to consider when moving to Singapore. Think about house prices, proximity to work and schools, and accessibility to supermarkets and other amenities.

Embrace the local culture
Throw yourself headfirst into Singapore’s vibrant culture. Try the local cuisine at hawker centres, shop at the local markets, visit museums to discover Singapore’s history or explore the botanical gardens and parks and get to know its flora and fauna.

Plan financially
Cost of living is relatively high in Singapore, so getting your finances in order must be a priority when you move. Do some financial planning before you relocate and plan ahead for opening bank accounts etc. and the first few months in your new home.
