Guardianship – home from home care for your child
Home from home care in our guardianship packages
Berkeley Guardians welcomes international and UK Forces children and students of all ages to their care whilst studying in the UK. We pride ourselves on the first class and sincere care we give each of our families and the strong communication which we have between the schools, the parents and the host families – not forgetting the children/students who we keep in regular contact with through our Guardian Angel appointment for each.
The two directors are very experienced in the world of education, international boarding, guardianship and host families.
“Berkeley Guardians has displayed absolute integrity using their wealth of experience and professional etiquette and we have found a choice of homestay which is conducive and appropriate with all the prescribed preferences desired”.

Guardianship Services in the UK - Home from home
Most well established schools require all young people coming into the United Kingdom for more than 12 weeks to have a guardian who will be there to care for that child when required. This guardian is in addition to the school you choose for your son/daughter. They will ensure that there is “wrap around care” offered outside of the school terms, in the exeats and at weekends as required.
Whilst we understand that we cannot work with your child as parents, we try very hard to be the next best thing to support your son/daughter. We aspire to attain an excellent relationship with him/her to give care and support at the highest level.
