Moving to a new country is always a challenge, but moving with a child is even more daunting. From finding schools and childcare services to leisure activities and healthcare facilities, parents usually need to think twice before they relocate. Whether you are being sent abroad for work or are seeking a new adventure for yourself and your family, it is important to take the needs of your loved ones, as well as your own, into account. The most recent Expat Insider Survey identifies the top ten countries you may want to consider if moving abroad with your family.
Thanks to the availability of childcare and education options, Austria clinches the top spot in the Family Life Index. Both factors receive positive ratings from 74% and 76% of expat parents, respectively. Moreover, the country has improved dramatically with regard to the quality of education and general family well-being, as it moved from the eleventh to the second place for both subcategories in one short year. Therefore, it is not surprising that 92% of expat parents rate Austria’s quality of education favorably, compared to a global average of 65%.
