How long have your children attended White Lodge?
Our daughter has attended White Lodge since April 2017. We started her with 2 half-day sessions a week and, at her request because she enjoyed going to school, increased it to 5 half-day sessions in March 2018.
What were some of your reasons for choosing White Lodge?
When looking for a preschool for our daughter, the factors that we considered were location, a child-led and play-based programme, a low teacher-student ratio, and preferably a green outdoor space where kids are able run freely and play in. White Lodge was the first preschool we visited and we absolutely loved that it has a large natural outdoor play space. The principal and teachers were warm and welcoming during the visit, and what really sealed the deal was how our daughter, who was then a shy 18 month old, felt so comfortable that she wandered off exploring with one of the teachers. We visited a few other preschools after, but never quite felt the same positive vibe that we got from White Lodge and, almost 2 years later, we’re really glad to have chosen White Lodge as her first school.
What are some of the positive changes you’ve noticed in your child since starting preschool?
It has been a joy for us to see how much she has grown, from a quiet child who sits with us during class presentations to a confident and sociable child who now takes part in class presentations and activities during school celebrations.
What does your child enjoy most at White Lodge?
She enjoys going to school. She comes home every day a happy child and is always excited to tell us all about her day with her friends and the activities that they have done. She especially loves Sporty Thursdays; she loves dressing up in sports attire and taking part in the outdoor activities that the teachers have planned.
