What factors did you consider when choosing a preschool?
We looked at the level of play and creativity that was going to be provided to our daughter. We come from a culture where a lot of early years are spent on social development, emotional intelligence, empathy and such, rather than theoretical studies and so we found a great match in White Lodge.
What were some of the main things that stood out for you at White Lodge in comparison to any other schools that you visited?
White Lodge has a very welcoming culture. We love the multicultural atmosphere and we found the pricing more reasonable than other schools.
How was the trial session that you took with your child before enrolling?
We had a trial day at White Lodge where we got to play in the sand pit and explore some of the fun toys. We felt it was a really good, safe and warm place for Amanda to start with since she was only 17 months old at that point.
Please tell us about how White Lodge involves parents in their child’s activities
As a parent I always felt welcomed in the school and I also had the privilege to take part in some cultural festivities. This enabled me to connect with several of the other teachers which I did not get to speak to on a daily basis
What does your child enjoy most at White Lodge?
Her amazing teachers, friends and all the new things she learns
How did your child enjoy the activity club?
For Amanda, the activity club was a great thing since she loves school and the short days were not enough for her. She has truly enjoyed getting to know the older kids and she learns a lot from spending time with them.
How was the school lived up to your expectations?
White Lodge has really provided everything we expected and more! All the various topics, themes and activities the kids have been able to enjoy has been fantastic. Amanda’s two years at White Lodge will forever stay in our hearts and be a very fond memory.
