The experience of living with a Host Family is one the most valuable parts of a High School programme. It's a great way to learn a culture from the inside, improve language skills and create a lifetime of memories.
There are many reasons why a family invites an international teenager to stay with them. One of the most common reasons is a desire to share their culture and lives with others. There is no such thing as a 'perfect' or 'ideal' Host Family and ours come in all shapes and sizes.
Educatius UK and Ireland takes the Host Family and student placement process very seriously. All Host Families undergo the relevant safeguarding checks for the appropriate country (DBS check in England and Garda checks in Ireland). In addition to this we ensure all Host Families are visited and referenced prior to acceptance to hosting.
Private Day School
For all our students enrolled at a Private Day school Educatius will provide a host family within 45 minutes travel time of the school and a full guardianship package.
Private Boarding School
During exeat weekends and holiday periods when the Boarding Schools closes our Educatius Guardian will be able to organise Host Family accommodation (additional nightly fee applicable).
