6 Perks of Raising Kids in a Condo

Here’s why condo living can be a fun experience not just for you but also for the little members of the family. By Loraine Balita

Much has been said about the advantages of living in a condo for young professionals, but did you know that condo living in the urban jungle can be beneficial for kids, too? Many parents who chose to set up their nest in the city and start a family are reaping the benefits of raising children where everything is within reach. We list down some of the best perks of raising kids in a condo and why you should also consider this for your family.

1. Less time in traffic means more time with the kids

Time is still the best gift you can give your kids and so much time is wasted in traffic every single day. The hours you spend waiting at the parking lot exit, and getting stuck in traffic are precious hours you could have spent with your children. Living in a condo near your workplace allows you to get home early and be with your loved ones. Instead of wasting energy and precious time in traffic you’ll be home to play with the kids or help them with their homework.

2. There are top-notch schools nearby

This is a very important consideration for parents of children especially those with little ones who can’t stand long drives on a daily basis (think about the stress a small child will be under if he or she would be made to commute long hours every day to get to school). Along with the school’s facilities, and method of teaching we need to also consider its proximity, and condos are almost always located near top notch schools. Some are located a few blocks away from condos that parents can even walk their kids to school. Avida Towers Turf, for example, is located in Bonifacio Global City near British School Manila, International School Manila, Treston International College, and STI College among many others. There are also a number of preschools within the area like PlaySchool International, Cambridge Preschool, and Learning Jungle.

3. There are so many fun places for kids nearby

Say goodbye to ho-hum weekends! Condo living allows parents and their children to enjoy the perks of city living. Condos like Avida Towers Turf for instance is located in the vibrantly busy BGC a few steps away from Kidzania, Uptown Mall, Bonifacio High Street, and so many open parks, play places, and museums. There’s also a basketball court and the country’s first artificial football turf, BGC Turf! Futbol Funatics offer football lessons in BGC Turf for children aged 3 to 17 years old. Your kids will never run out of places to explore, and things to do in this part of the city.

4. They’re located close to clinics and hospitals

Parents of small children know the importance of living close to hospitals and clinics for immediate medical attention. In case of emergencies a few minutes could mean a child’s life which is why living within minutes to a top-notch hospital facility is a big plus. Avida Towers Turf is located a few blocks away from one of the country’s premiere hospitals, St. Luke’s Global City. There are also clinics like Qualimed Clinic at Bonifacio Stopover, and drug stores and dental offices in the area.

5. They’re safe and secure

For most parents, safety is a top priority. Among the many services you can enjoy if you live in a condo is 24/7 security. Most have roving guards who check in and around the area a few times so you can sleep well at night without worrying. Condos are also equipped with fire safety features and other amenities residents can use in case of emergencies.

6. They have fun features and amenities that kids will enjoy

Kids love water, and they go crazy over pools. Imagine how happy they would be once they realize they live a few floors and doors away from a kiddie pool! When they’re done playing mermaid they can spend afternoons running in the play area or frolicking in the garden. Other condos have viewing decks where the family can enjoy the view, and a clubhouse families can use for weekend bonding.

These are just a few of the many perks of raising kids in a condo located in the heart of a vibrant city. Condo living offers so many advantages for parents, who want to give their kids a fun, safe, and exciting way to live life while growing up. Visit Avida Land for more condo options in the city.
