The New Parksuites @ Holland Grove condo has it all: greenery, nearby schools, and proximity to Holland Village and Sixth Avenue

As mamas we are pretty much always fretting about school; What’s the best age to start? How much will it cost? How can I ensure my child gets into the right primary school?

As any parent prepping for primary school knows, distance plays a big role in school selection and your child’s enrolment chances. It can also affect the quality of your child’s commute and even how much sleep they get (after all, it’s a lot better to walk than have to wait for the bus!).


This is a big part of why we were so excited to hear about the new Parksuites: SOHO Living by the Park, a forthcoming development from Far East Organization that’s set to open in 2022. Set amidst the greenery of Henry Park in prestigious District 10 just off Holland Road, Parksuites @ Holland Grove is also right in front of Henry Park Primary School. For younger kids, top preschools like Between Two Trees and Little Ones Kindergarten are a short walk away, while Nexus International School is just two minutes away by car.

Around the corner you’ll find Cold Storage Jelita, and a short walk or bus ride away are the myriad shops and restaurants of Holland Village, Namly and Sixth Avenue. Sweet!


Besides its awesome location, Parksuites @ Holland Grove is perfectly designed for families, with 2- and 3-bedroom, dual key units that are spread over two levels. It’s the ideal layout to ensure everyone in the family has plenty of space. Every unit will also have a smart home hub to seamlessly integrate devices within the home. If you’re after even more space, there will be just five luxurious 4-bedroom Triplex homes, each with its own private lift, exclusive roof terrace, swimming pool access and two individual carpark lots.

Additional kid-friendly facilities will include a 50-metre lap pool, a separate children’s pool, and a recreation pool and Jacuzzi. There’ll also be a gym, along with a BBQ and Dining Pavilion. And for even more convenience, the ground floor will feature a mix of integrated restaurants and shops, so you’ll always have that much-needed cup of coffee or convenient sundries close at hand.

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀

Have you caught your self yelling at your children? We have all been guilty of this and it has not been our finest moment. Would you like to learn how to be a calm and collected parent? This long weekend would be a good time to practice 😀 Our #linkinbio has the details from @respectfulmom.
