Standard Guardianship

Our standard service provides students with a caring home-stay family who will foster a nurturing ‘home from home’ environment.   Standard Guardianship offers a 24-7 contact for parents, students, school and host family.

We will find a suitable guardian and host family in close proximity to your child’s school.  Our guardians will take care of all half-term, exeat weekend and holiday arrangements and will organise all transport between airport, school and homestay family, with our trusted drivers. 

With over 50 years of experience parents can trust that our standard service is one of quality and conscientious care-giving.  Parents who opt for the standard guardianship package can have peace of mind that their child is being well looked-after.

We offer free school selection advice.
