My husband and i are thinking of moving to Bangkok due to work. We have a 4yr and 7yr old girl. We have looked into the schooling but the International schools are incredibly expensive. Does anyone know of an affordable school that will have similar education standards to Australia.
What type of school do your kids attend in Australia? What curriculum are they studying?
While your children won't be eligible to attend a public school in Thailand (at least one parent needs to be Thai) you should look into private bilingual schools, which are more affordable than international schools.
Take a look at the Education and Schools in Thailand page for an overview of the system.
