LWPS Application Review

Once the required admissions documents have been received including the registration fees and initial deposit have been received, our Admissions department will begin to review and process the child's application file. More information or interviews may be requested on a case by case basis.  Families will then be notified of the admissions outcome by email.

LWPS Application Acceptance

    Upon successful enrolment, an official acceptance letter followed by a confirmation of placement will be emailed to the family. When a place is offered, the school fee will be due on 25th of the month, subjects to your child’s start date with the preschool. The Admission team will require the completion of pre-enrolment documents, along with any pending documents which were not provided during the time of application to be submitted prior to the child's commencement date. 

    The allocation of teachers and classes will be the responsibility and decision of the Preschools.

    LWPS Waitlist
      If a place is not available at the point of enrolment, you may submit the registration fees, together with the required forms and application documents in order to place your child onto the waitlist. As soon as a place becomes available, the first recipient on the waitlist will be notified by the Admissions Department at admissions@lornawhiston.com.sg 

      LWPS Withdrawal Policy

      In order to avoid any misunderstanding, distress and full liability on the subsequent monthly school fees, it is important and mandatory for families to submit their written notification of withdrawal to our preschool admin team at least 30 calendar days in advance. The withdrawal notice period is one full month and the last day of attendance must be the last calendar day of the month. No withdrawal is allowed in the month of November and December. All withdrawal ending on the last calendar day of November and December  must be submitted latest by 31st October. For any withdrawal notice received after 31st October, the child's last day of school will be on the last calendar day of January in the following new year.

      Please notify the Admissions department of any changes of address or contact details or if your circumstances change. 
        Lorna Whiston Preschool will register a child requiring a Student Pass with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) after acceptance and parents will process the application from there.

        Please note that applicants requiring a Student Pass will be accepted onto our waitlist and no place will be reserved for the student until formal approval has been granted by the ICA. Student Pass holders can commence school after the Student ID has been issued. Student Pass holders must meet the minimum 90% monthly attendance requirements stipulated by the ICA.

          Lorna Whiston aims to welcome all family members into our community. As such, our first admissions priority is given to families with siblings. Acceptance into grade levels with very limited places will be reserved for children with a sibling or multiple siblings already enrolled at Lorna Whiston Preschool or with applications submitted. Siblings will also be given first priority should there be a waitlist in their grade level.
