What were the factors that played in your decision to choose White Lodge as your son’s preschool?
We chose White Lodge because of the warm and nurturing approach of its teachers towards the children. We also liked that its curriculum was a bit more play-based than other Singaporean preschools.
What did you love about White Lodge the most?
Foremost, our children loved the warm and caring approach of their teachers as well as the great sense of community and team-spirit among the children. They also enjoyed the many annual festivities and celebrations.
What have been major highlights of your family’s involvement with the school?
One of the highlights were the annual concerts and regular class presentations, which both children and parents enjoy a lot. These events are a great way of increasing the children’s confidence. Another highlight was seeing our youngest daughter enjoying White Lodge a lot after an extremely difficult period of adjustment in the beginning.
How has the White Lodge curriculum helped prepare your children for the next phase of school?
As German parents, we were not looking for a rigid academic curriculum in a preschool. We felt that White Lodge balanced academic and social development in a good way and always tried to take into account the different expectations of parents coming from many different cultural backgrounds. White Lodge’s curriculum definitely contributed to our children’s open mindness, curiosity and confidence.
