Learning without Limits … Lorna Whiston Preschools aims to provide a safe and stimulating bilingual learning environment where children are happy, motivated and eager to learn. Our focus is to provide positive learning experiences that encourage children to explore and discover, question and create, and instilling in them a lifelong love of learning.

“Since 1980, Lorna Whiston Schools (LWS) has been the brand for quality education for students aged 18 months to 16 years. It offers a myriad of programmes, including preschool ones, English enrichment, creative writing, reading and phonics, speech and drama as well as public speaking.

LWS differentiates itself through its unique approach to education – defined as ‘real learning’ – and through its strong reputation as a pioneer in this field.

For learning to be effective, it should be relevant and enjoyable, which is why LWA invests heavily in quality teachers, curricula and learning environments. It’s no wonder it has picked up accolades such as the Singapore Preschool Accreditation Framework and the prestigious Singapore Quality Class awards.”
