Kindie Review: WHITELODGE PRESCHOOL, Bangsar South

Pretty much mixed reviews about this school. A lot of expats live in my area and the Indian expats stay out of this kindie because of their laissez faire approach. There were some pretty bad reviews about this place, and the nastiest one was about how the teachers are engrossed in their phones and let children cry or fight among themselves. Left unsupervised. *the horror* I can't find this damning review online anymore, it must have been removed or not showing up on my search with VPN.

However, lately I have been walking back home everyday from work and I can see a handful of parents walking with their child in tow; coming out of this kindie. Sometimes I can see their staffs walking to the LRT.

So if these parents are putting their kids in there-surely it must be doing something right-to a degree? Or has the management changed? For parents that are unaware; after 3-4 years or running a kindie, the owner is allowed to "sell it off" to someone for a higher fee. By selling I mean the license, the contract, the right to use the kindie name; the whole works. It is exactly like selling an AP permit. The latter being illegal but the former; legal. There is plenty money to be made for such sales. But I believe teaching is a calling-there are some good kindies out there. I just have to find it.

Anyways let us backtrack to White Lodge. I called them last Friday to inquire and someone followed up with me on Monday morning with a phone call and answered my flurry of emails.
