Living with kids in Dhaka

Hi! We are a family with young kids (4, 6 & 8) moving to Dhaka in April. My husband has a position through a volunteer program. We will be living on a very small stipend (by Western standards at least).
As we cannot afford International schooling costs, I will be homeschooling my two eldest kids. I have a few questions:
Is it possible to rent an apartment (3 bedroom).. furnished or unfurnished for less than 40,000 taka per month in the Gulshan/Banani/Baridhara areas?
Are there any homeschooling groups in Dhaka?
What kind of wage is expected for a full-time helper who can speak some English? (I know this will vary quite a lot, but at this stage I need some idea).
Do any expats shop for fruit and veg at the local markets?
This will do for a start, but I'm sure I will have many more questions to come. I guess I am after budget conscious information as we will not have the finances many expats are accustomed to,

Thanks in advance for any information.
