EtonHouse Pre-School offers an academically rigorous educational programme based on skills, attitudes, concepts, knowledge and action. Through an inquiry-based programme that celebrates and taps into both the diversity that exists within our community, students at EtonHouse are encouraged to become critical thinkers, life-long learners and active members in the community.
We provide stimulating learning experiences that are focused around the strengths and needs of individuals and encourage each child to reach their full potential – academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We strive to promote a safe and comfortable environment where all children are happy, supported and understood.
We aim to foster a love of learning in children and provide them with the skills they need to be adaptable and flexible in a rapidly changing world. Through modeling and making explicit the IB Learner Profile we strive towards creating a learning community in which all members are; caring, open-minded, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, inquirers, balanced, reflective, risk takers and principled.
EtonHouse Pre-School seeks to nurture in its students:
- ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship
- critical and compassionate thinking
- a sense of the universal values of shared humanity
- a respect for the variety of cultures and attitudes that make up the variety of life
- an understanding of community
- an active engagement in charitable projects
Students are recognised as active participants in the learning process. Emphasis is placed upon first-hand practical experiences which engage students’ imagination and curiosity, fostering genuine understanding. Students are encouraged to plan and negotiate, to identify and solve problems, to take learning risks, to approach tasks from different perspectives and to develop a critical appreciation towards all aspects of their work.
