Where is stay in Belgium, if job is in Wavre

Hi all,
We will be moving to Belgium in 2 weeks (myself, spouse, & 4 yr old kid). My job will be in Wavre. I will have company car, but not immediately (may be after 6 months or so). As of now, we speak only English, but we are ready to learn French once we arrive.

A few posts in this forum have given me fair idea on good areas to stay in Brussels. But, I am not sure about should we go for Brussels or a smaller areas like Wavre, Leuven (We may learn Dutch, instead of French, if needed ;-))

I am thinking about safe areas to stay with family, public transport from these places to Wavre, good schools for kid, few shopping places.

Which ones would you suggest? Any opinions?
