Hi Mariaeva115,

I'd advise you to narrow down a few schools that you'd like your children to attend before you begin your search for a home. The My School website gives is an excellent source for getting reviews on Australian schools.

Family-friendly suburbs in Perth include Victoria Park, Applecross and Rivervale. 

Take a look at our Areas and Suburbs of Perth page for more information.

Regards,

Como is a great area. Close enough to the river and a quick and easy bus ride into the city.

Melville is a great suburb in Perth. In fact, it's ranked #1 in the list of top suburbs in Perth. It's great for families with kids and even for young professionals. Hope this helps.
