Sending your kids off to school is one thing but allowing them to stay in a boarding school is an even more significant decision for parents. After all, boarding schools offer an opportunity for children to develop independence and live away from your care. However, it's important to recognise that this choice can be highly beneficial for your children.
They’ll have more opportunities to form meaningful relationships inside and outside the classroom, attend extracurricular activities that might help them discover what they want to do in the future, and prepare themselves for adulthood, including managing their time. If you would also like your kids to enjoy these benefits, here are some international day and boarding schools in Thailand where you can enrol them.
