Lived in south Florida for years. Pre-kids though so not much help with that side.
Gated communities are popular and have lots of things within the complex, swimming pools, gym, tennis courts etc. You do have to pay for these extras though, usually a monthly fee. Depending on your area will determine the cost.
They do feel safer, having a guard at the entrance, and usually 24hr security.
I loved living there, even though the seasons are Hot, Really hot & F"%¤ing hot You won't spend as much time outdoors as you think.
I sooooo miss shopping, it it unbelievably cheap.

A Jewish friend of mine is very happy with her children at Pine Crest, it has campuses in Boca & Fort Lauderdale. Their family are very academic & she is very focused on making the right choices for their children.
