Are you fed up with the current global pandemic?
Do you want to leave everything behind and start from scratch somewhere that gives you and your family a little more freedom?
Do you want to get out of that cage and live the life you deserve?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Riviera Maya is for you!
The Mexican borders have been open for a while and are now open to tourists from all countries without restrictions. The timing to relocate couldn’t be better!
Relocating to another country such as Mexico may be difficult at times, mostly when you have a family. One of the first things you should do before you move is to find a place to stay and choose the schools your children will go to. As we are in the middle of the school year, you may think it will be more complicated, especially if your children do not speak the language. Let us assure you that this will not be the case! Most of the children in private schools are expats or foreigners and did not speak Spanish when they arrived, just like your children. Mexicans who attend these schools generally speak good English. Kids are sponges at this age so give them a few months and their Spanish will be as good as Mexicans!
Let us recommend the best bilingual private schools in Playa del Carmen to help you worry a little less about integrating your children and make the right decision.
First, why private rather than public?
Because public schools are generally not bilingual and are often overcrowded.
We want to make sure your kids feel comfortable, we want them to be able to communicate in English first while they are learning Spanish. And since they learn quite quickly, don’t even worry about the language barrier as they will likely learn way before we adults do!
Most international and private schools have preschools, kindergartens, primary schools, middle and high schools, all of which are regulated by the Secretary of Public Education, commonly referred to as SEP. The diploma they issue is recognized in Canada and the United States.
Tuition fees are more affordable than in other countries in North America. You should consider an annual registration fee and a monthly tuition fee payment, both of which are between $ 4000-10000 Mexican pesos or $ 200- $ 500 US dollars.
