Lorna Whiston Winchester Preschool, 9 Winchester Road, Singapore 117783
Starting preschool is an exciting time to engage, inspire and feed your child’s appetite for knowledge.
True to this belief, Lorna Whiston Preschools offer a stimulating bilingual learning environment for children 18 months to 6 years old.
Outstanding reputation built on 37 years of teaching
Established in 1980 Lorna Whiston has over the past 37 years built a reputation for high quality education and teaching excellence across Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong with our signature programmes: English Enrichment, Speech & Drama and Preschools.
Bilingual curriculum aligned with the Singapore Ministry of Education standards
At Lorna Whiston Preschools our interactive bilingual programme ensures children develop excellent communication skills in both English and Mandarin. An English language teacher and a Mandarin language teacher lead every class throughout the day guiding the children so that they are immersed in the two languages naturally.
All subjects are integrated by focussing on a special topic each week allowing children to understand the connections between individual subjects and how the topic relates to the wider world. Teachers continually monitor every child’s progress with parent teacher conferences and formal reports, each occurring twice a year.
Teaching excellence within small class sizes
With tremendous experience in Early Years education are teachers are fully qualified, dedicated and passionate in helping children to form connections across subjects. Our Preschool teachers on average have been with Lorna Whiston for over four years and undergo over 60 hours of teaching training annually, allowing them to continue to hone their skills. With small class sizes and two fully qualified teachers in all classes every child is given the individual attention needed to support their growth ready for entry to Primary School.
Preparing for Primary School with the Lorna Whiston individualised Reading Program
Lorna Whiston’s individualised Reading Programme has been developed over the past 25 years ensuring children are well prepared to excel in all subject areas on entering primary school. Children are encouraged and supported by teachers with ongoing reading assessments to ensure every child progresses at the right pace and develops a lifelong love of reading.
Extend the school day with Lorna Whiston Enrichment Masterclasses
Perfect for working families to extend the school day. Full day students benefit from specially designed afternoon enrichment masterclasses to develop a wealth of skills in different learning areas. Classes are varied daily including two masterclasses a week conducted by our enrichment teaching specialists from Lorna Whiston English Enrichment and Speech & Drama Schools.
Superb facilities, convenient locations and flexible programmes
Lorna Whiston preschools are located both on the West and East Coast offering easy access for families across the island to flexible programmes from 7 am to 7 pm weekdays and Saturday mornings.
Well-resourced, stimulating early years learning environments at two locations
