Academic Guardianship

For students coming to Singapore without their parents, a trusted guardian that they can go to for any assistance here is a must. Our team of dedicated and experienced guardians and mentors take it upon themselves to ensure that each and every child under their charge is looked after like their own children. Besides this, our stringent selection of guardians are all individuals who can make the parents feel comfortable while keeping an eye out for the best interest for their child when they cannot be physically here.

As parents ourselves, we know that being away from your child is challenging. That’s why our guardianship packages don’t just stop with getting them a roof over their heads and three meals. Our comprehensive guardianship packages also come complete with academic guardianship – where we keep track of their academic progress, suggest enrichment classes or supplementary tuition and work closely with them and their schools to ensure they meet their educational goals.

Academic Guardianship
The whole purpose of children coming is to provide them with better educational opportunities. As such, it’s only natural that they need to stay abreast of their studies and assignments. We stay on top of their academic progress and ensure they get any outside-of-class support necessary should they need that extra little push!

Day-to-day Issues
Besides the big things, we will also ensure your child is well taken care of, from topping up their prepaid cards to sending in their laptops for repair. We’ve got the A to Zs covered!
