Once the required forms and documents have been submitted and the registration fees and initial deposit have been received, the Admissions department will review the application file.

More information or interviews may be requested. Families will then be notified by email of the outcome.

    When a place is offered, the school fee will be due on 25th of the month, subject to your child’s start date with the school. Any pending documents which were not submitted during the time of application must be submitted prior to the student’s start date.

    In each of the classes, there will be an English language teacher and a Chinese language teacher present to ensure complete immersion in both languages and to ensure a good teacher - student ratio. The allocation of teachers will be the responsibility and decision of the Preschools.

      If a place is not available at the time you wish to join, your child’s name will be placed on the waitlist upon submitting all required forms and application documents. You will be notified as soon as a vacancy is anticipated.

      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.
