6. New Zealand

New Zealand would be a wonderful place to place to raise your little ones. The pace of life is slow, there is a great sense of community, the quality of life is high and New Zealanders are laid back and friendly. The education system is great and when your little ones grow up with a New Zealand passport they will have a lot of opportunities for working abroad when they get older.
