Selecting Your Suburb: Attributes For A Young Family
First-time parents – are you on the hunt for a happy home in a suburb where your gorgeous little family can thrive? In today’s blog the Aston Homes team explore the attributes that offer the best in family-focused living. Read on!
If you’re sending the little ones off to school, there’s a lot to think about – public or private education, academic results, community feel and more. Luckily, Melbourne’s outer suburbs have some wonderful facilities to make your decision a little easier. In Melbourne’s outer north, there are a number of government, non-government, Catholic primary and secondary schools with great reputations. Some popular inner-Melbourne private schools also have campuses in the north, such as Ivanhoe Grammar School’s Plenty Campus – catering for students in suburbs like Epping, South Morang, Craigieburn, Yarrambat and more. If you’re looking west, Tarneit and Werribee have several highly regarded private and public schools, along with a fantastic range of sporting clubs and extra curricular activities. These suburbs are conveniently serviced by public transport, with local buses and the Werribee train line in handy proximity.
Parklands and sporting facilities
Whether your little ones enjoy a friendly game of kick-to-kick or a competitive turn around the tennis court, there are plenty of local sporting groups in the communities we’re a part of. Aston Homes even sponsor two soccer clubs in the north – Lalor United Sloga Football Club and Diamond Valley United Soccer Club – not that we’re biased! There is a vast selection of local soccer, netball and basketball teams for all ages and abilities to try out in Melbourne’s north and west. For fast bowlers, fielders, swimmers and skaters – there’s a game, pool or rink ready for you too. No matter your taste, the sporting communities in Melbourne’s north and west are perfectly placed to help your little ones with their team building and developmental skills!
Young families who choose to build in Melbourne’s outer suburbs will love the true community spirit and discover tons of opportunities available for the whole family to enjoy. From school holiday activities and sporting clubs to community barbeques, holiday celebrations and social groups for all ages – there’s something for everyone.
