Our mission is to provide our children with high quality education and individualised care, delivered by our motivated, dedicated and compassionate educators.
The first White Lodge Kindergarten to open was our Bukit Timah centre on 15th July 1999 with three students, two teachers and a determination to improve the standard of kindergarten education here in Singapore.
Over 25 nationalities are represented throughout the White Lodge centres across Singapore. Since our inception in 1999, we have seen up to 8000 children through our doors.
White Lodge’s founding director, Jayne Nadarajoo was also a parent, and she realised that childhood education tends to focus on academic excellence, with little emphasis on longer-term intellectual and emotional growth. Not satisfied with how children were being nurtured in schools and armed with ten years of experience in early childhood care, Jayne decided to start her own kindergarten for her children, Saktish and Kenisha.
At this time White Lodge incorporated the theories of High Scope, Reggio Emilia and Howard Gardner and is still guided by a list of learning objectives. White Lodge was one of the very first schools in Singapore to acknowledge the value that creative education brings to preschool aged children.
White Lodge is committed to maintaining a high teacher-child ratio as well as having well trained local and expatriate teachers. With a comprehensive curriculum encompassing the Primary Years Programme plus teaching for 47 weeks of the year, White Lodge is an excellent investment in education. Lastly White Lodge is committed to maintaining open communication and parent involvement.
Our aim at White Lodge is to liberate, empower and motivate the children to use their individual gifts with confidence, creativity and generosity in loving and responsible service. At White Lodge we work hard to give the children the opportunities to develop as intelligent, confident, wise and lovable young people.
We strive to provide an education with “something more“.
White Lodge’s Vision is to be continually recognised as one of the most inspirational and nurturing educational establishment in the region, where our children are given the opportunity to discover and pursue their dreams.
White Lodge provides a child–centred learning environment that encourages active learning, involvement and discovery through a hands-on approach. We believe a child’s role is to experience learning as an adventure in an environment that accommodates his/her learning rate.
