Living in Singapore offers us parents the best of all worlds when it comes to giving our children the right start in early education. But with the myriad of preschool options out there — from private schools to government ones — the choice can be mind-boggling.
To add to the challenge, research tells us that the first five years of life are crucial for a child’s brain development. During this time, they absorb knowledge more quickly than at any other time in their lives. Which is even more the reason that you want to find a preschool that can both inspire your child academically and help them develop the necessary values and skillsets for the future.
The good news? White Lodge International Preschool & Childcare does all that, and more. Plus, with 10 locations in Singapore (including Toa Payoh and Bedok from March 2021), it’s easy to find one that’s close to you.
Furthermore, White Lodge has over 21 years of experience in education, so you can rest assured that your young learner will be in good hands from the time they say, “bye, mum!” until they run back into your arms after a fun packed day of school. Read on to find out why we think White Lodge is an excellent preschool option for your little ones.
1) The White Lodge School Culture
All White Lodge preschools strive to create a warm and welcoming environment, a safe space where children can thrive and grow into happy and confident learners. We hear that a huge part of this can be attributed to the passionate and dedicated teachers, who are supported with a well-written curriculum, daily lesson plans and professional development sessions.
2) A Curriculum that fosters Creativity, Confidence, and Independence
With a curriculum that draws on themes from Reggio Emilia, Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, and the High Scope approach, White Lodge empowers and motivates children to discover their gifts and use them generously in service to others. That’s something we certainly approve of!
3) Mandarin learning based on MOE Frameworks
The Mandarin programme at White Lodge is based on Singapore’s Kindergarten and Primary School frameworks, so you know your little one will have a solid foundation for language learning when they graduate. Fun-filled classroom activities such as storytelling, play-acting, art projects, movement and performances further ensure that young ones enjoy bilingual learning too.
4) S.T.E.A.M. Skills for the Future
Technology is a significant part of our world now. In the coming years, it will no doubt play an even bigger role in our children’s lives. As such, White Lodge has a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) project-based programme that lets little ones build future-ready skills and tech savviness.
5) Global, Cultural, and Inclusive Values
As an inclusive school, White Lodge welcomes and supports children with additional learning requirements. Furthermore, the school celebrates cultural diversity and teaches children to be global citizens who embrace differences with understanding and compassion. That’s certainly a trait we’d want our children to have, don’t we?
6) Trust White Lodge Preschool with all your Childcare Needs
With 10 locations in Singapore — and two new ones opening at Grandeur Park Residences in Bedok, and at Toa Payoh in March 2021 — there’s probably a White Lodge preschool close by for your little one. Have an even younger child? Babies from as young as six months can join in our parent-and-child programmes at certain branches of White Lodge International Preschool & Childcare!
