Choosing the right school in SG for your child? It can be complicated! But, EtonHouse International School makes it easy.
How so? Dedicated to bringing quality education from preschool through high school, EtonHouse International School aims to provide the ultimate comprehensive education pathway for your children. Throughout its innovative preschools and K-12 schools across Singapore (and Asia), students develop essentials skills that will help shape a better future.
Read on about the 4 key components EtonHouse uses to give its students the edge from the early years.
The school prides itself on cultivating holistic knowledge and skills with lessons that touch on numeracy, literacy, scientific thinking and other key concepts required to move on to further education.
Starting from 18 months, students experience the school’s inquiry-based “Inquire-Think-Learn” curriculum, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. Then, in Primary, Secondary and High School, EtonHouse offers the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme and IGCSE qualifications. Through its interconnected curriculum across all levels, it allows your child to seamlessly transition from one learning phase to the next – all within the EtonHouse community!
Though academic knowledge is important, EtonHouse recognises the significance of soft skills, such as creative thinking and problem-solving, as they go hand-in-hand in developing essential skills to be successful both as an individual and part of a group. Just like how experience plays a vital role in securing a job, skills acquired in their early years can have a lasting positive impact on your child, too!
This can be through project work in classes where children collaborate on researching and learning how to find information in multiple contexts; from books to using information technology to possibly interviewing others. Skills taught also include knowing how to present their findings and share their thoughts and ideas with others using multiple mediums and different tools.
EtonHouse’s third philosophy is all about igniting the children’s habit of mind. “We want children to have a love for literacy, a love for numeracy, to understand how reading and writing and working with numbers help us in our everyday life,” shares Lisamarie Hughes, Principal of EtonHouse International School Sentosa.
At EtonHouse centres, the children get excited about coming to school – with a very strong enthusiasm to engage in their previous projects and to connect with what they had done the day before. Take a look at this video and you’ll see what we mean!
Did you know, research shows that if children have a love for learning at a very young age, they will move on to be much more successful in their higher education and in their workplace in future?!
For the school to cultivate and maintain its strong sense of community, happiness and joy always comes first!
“Above all else, there has to be a very strong level of trust and care between adults and children,” says Lisamarie. “Children at EtonHouse feel very safe and have a strong sense of security, which allows them to take risks and explore beyond what they already know in order to develop new discoveries,” she explains. “Only then will they experience deep happiness and joy in everything that they do.”
