About Whiteoak School
The oak tree is renowned for its great height, age and strength. It is a symbol of endurance. The oak tree though slow at first to produce fruit as it establishes it roots, once it starts it produces acorns for thousands of years. Our aim is to firmly ground our children 'laying strong foundations' so that they will produce long lasting fruits. We aim to help children develop creativity, problem solving skills and the ability to be resourceful. Through attending Whiteoak, they will become successful learners who have enquiring minds, think for themselves, reason, question and evaluate. In order to achieve this, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage in Acorns, Busy Bees, Butterflies and Pre-School Class. This approach to learning has been approved in the UK and worldwide following years of extensive research by Early Years professionals.
Our primary classes follow the national curriculum of England and Wales with some emphasis placed on the Nigerian curriculum as this is our host country. Mrs Oniru (founder and Director) trained in the UK and attends regular seminars in the UK in order to keep abreast of new developments in the Early Years and primary Curriculum. You will find all of our Policies and Procedures in this handbook. This ensures that the organisation can run smoothly, and allows parents and staff to work in partnership. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone or Email.
