White Lodge’s founding director, Jayne Nadarajoo is also a parent, and when her kids were younger, 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 preschool for her children, Saktish and Kenisha, 21 years ago.
The first White Lodge Preschool to open was our Bukit Timah centre on 15th July 1999 with three students, two teachers and a determination to improve the standard of preschool education here in Singapore.
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“.
Our overarching vision that we strive to live by is to be continually recognised as one of the most inspirational and nurturing educational establishments in each region respectively, where our children are given the opportunity to discover and pursue their dreams. Our mission is to provide our children with high quality education and individualised care, delivered by our motivated, dedicated and compassionate educators.
These philosophies have allowed us to expand to various locations throughout Singapore as well as Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
Our objective at White Lodge is to help pre-schoolers derive the greatest value, pleasure and fulfillment from their childhood. Over the years, our team of early childhood educators has worked to develop a curriculum that can support the growth and development of children as unique individuals.
We believe that White Lodge offers a unique educational opportunity for children in Singapore and Malaysia
We look forward to meeting with you and welcoming you into our schools and extended family. Together we know that we can make a difference to your child’s learning journey.

“Children at White Lodge are emotionally and socially safe from a young age. They leave us with resilience, ready to take on the next adventure and academic risks needed to be successful in the 21st Century.
We look at early childhood education as an opportunity to give all children the hope that they need for a better day. Each of us are invested in providing a memorable experience for life.”
