The white-fronted tit (Sittiparus semilarvatus) is a species of bird in the family Paridae. It is endemic to the Philippines. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The white-fronted tit was formerly included in the genus Parus but was moved to Sittiparus when Parus was split into several resurrected genera following the publication of a detailed molecular phylogenetic analysis in 2013.[2][3]
