Picking a new home is a big thing in a family’s life. While parents have a list of things that they need, such as enough space to host holiday parties and close proximity to work and top-rated schools, kids have their own needs that a home needs to satisfy. When viewing homes, families should consider factors such as how close it is to a school, how much room there is for pets, and how they could see their family growing in it. Check out some of the other common suggestions below!
The playground is a great way for kids to burn energy and meet new friends while parents get to take a break, but they play an important role in a kid’s growth, as well. Any child development expert could tell you that at a playground, children learn social skills, stretch out their muscles, and develop eye-hand coordination. Every neighborhood needs one!
With the demands of school getting bigger and technology coming up with more distractions, the time that a kid spends outside is shrinking drastically. That’s why it’s important to live in a neighborhood where it’s easier for kids to get out and move around. Getting outdoors is an essential part of growing up. Outside is where imagination can take over. Parks and trails are an important part of this, serving as a place for children to have their own adventures, explore the natural world, and have fun in the fresh air.
Come summertime, everyone needs somewhere to cool off! What’s better than splashing around in a pool? Parents might want to catch up on their tans, but for kids, a swimming pool is the ultimate social spot. Whether it’s part of the community’s offerings, or it’s right in the backyard, no one can go wrong with a pool.
Part of the reason why the early childhood years are so important is because children are forming the relationships that they’ll carry throughout life. A great neighborhood should be able to help foster these relationships. Sidewalks open up a whole world to kids, from letting them ride bikes down the way to a friend’s house to giving them an open canvas for chalk art. Parks give them space to play in. Wildcat Ranch in Crandall, Texas, even has a school on-site, so not only are kids close to their education, they’re also close to their friends as well.
No need to leave furry friends out of the fun – a home should have plenty of space for pets. After all, they’re family too, and their needs to be respected as well. That means a big backyard to run around in, plenty of parks and trails to take a walk to, and a separate space for them to lay their head (and tear up their toys).
An ideal family home is one that kids can explore childhood and grow up in. That’s what makes the homes at Wildcat Ranch so special. Located in Crandall, Texas, this community creates a hometown feel and offers a brand new on-site school, Noble Reed Elementary School. As part of the Crandall Independent School District, Noble Reed Elementary is just one of the many features that make Wildcat Ranch perfect for families and kids.
