How long have your children attended White Lodge?
We found White Lodge (East Coast) all the way back in 2013, a whopping 5 years ago!
What were some of your reasons for choosing White Lodge?
One main criteria when choosing the school was proximity to home, so we visited as many preschools that we could find, within a certain radius. To be honest, the decision to attend White Lodge was led by our son, who was 1.5 years old at the time, during the school visits. He immediately responded to the warmth, colour and friendly nature at the school. His eyes lit up as he explored the school, he had no reservations when approached by the staff. Ultimately, it was the teachers at the time of enrolment who had a huge influence on the decision.
What are some of the things your children enjoy about going to White Lodge?
They don’t stop talking about the art and cookery lessons that they do! The community at the school is very international in flavour and they have enjoyed (as have their parents) forging solid, lasting friendships with kids and families from everywhere in the world.
What has been one major highlight of your family’s involvement with the school?
We have enjoyed witnessing the kids’ confidence grow in their performance skills. To watch them become more comfortable singing, dancing and speaking in front of an audience has been amazing.
How has the White Lodge curriculum helped prepare your child for the next phase of school?
Attending White Lodge has helped equip our children with a foundation in reading, mathematics and Mandarin among other subjects, something that we would have had to flounder with at home. Given the fun environment in which they have been able to learn these basics has given them a solid foundation in the learning process.
