The EtonHouse International Pre-School in Hong Kong is part of the EtonHouse International Education Group. Headquartered in Singapore, the EtonHouse Group is a global organization with 71 schools in 9 countries with over 6000 children from 61 different nationalities. The EtonHouse International School and Pre-School campuses over the last two decades have established standards of excellence in international education from the kindergarten to the senior years.

EtonHouse International Pre-School, Hong Kong will reinforce this reputation of excellence and leadership in educational practice by offering a high quality early childhood programme based on research based best practice. The integrated and stimulating programme offered at the campus will offer children an engaging and meaningful learning environment where they will develop into confident, competent, responsible and multilingual global citizens.

The curriculum is inspired by the work undertaken by colleagues working in the world renowned pre-schools and infant toddler centres in Reggio Emilia, in Northern Italy. EtonHouse, in collaboration with Reggio Children started the International Network in Asia to enhance communication, dialogue and professional development opportunities between Reggio Children and early childhood professionals in Asia (http://www.etonhouse.com.sg/reggio-emilia-in-asia.html). The EtonHouse Inquire ○ Think ○ Learn curriculum is a research based programme that focuses on inquiry based integrated learning where children’s ideas, interests and theories inform the design of curriculum experiences. EtonHouse runs several International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools in different parts of the world. There are 6 IB certified EtonHouse campuses. The early years curriculum in EtonHouse is therefore in alignment with that of the primary years. EtonHouse Hong Kong will also offer a high quality integrated second language programme that will develop in children a strong foundation in Mandarin. Recently, Singapore’s Founding Father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew endorsed the bilingual programme offered by EtonHouse (http://www.etonhouse.com.sg/media1/news-events/289-hampton-pre-school-in-tanjong-pagar-to-open-in-2014.html). In Reggio Emilia, they refer to the learning environment as the ‘third teacher’. In EtonHouse Hong Kong, our teachers pay great attention to the look and ‘feel’ of the classrooms carefully organizing spaces for small and large group work. We believe that children have a right to a respectful environment. The environment brings the outside world indoors to ensure that children build deep relationships with the natural world. The carefully planned spaces with innovative and open ended resources and learning materials creates an environment for exploration, research and a life-long love for learning.
