About This Company

The EtonHouse Group provides Educational Services through International Schools, Pre-Schools and Early Childhood Teacher Education Courses.  Registered with the Ministry of Education in Singapore and China, EtonHouse is a member of the Council of International Schools.

EtonHouse currently operates 26 schools in Singapore, China, Indonesia, India, Japan, Malaysia and Korea. Together these schools provide quality international education to over 3000 children from fifty four different nationalities.

The EtonHouse curriculum follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy of inquiry based learning and the Literacy and Numeracy strategies from the United Kingdom for the primary children in Singapore. For the Early Years Programme (Nursery to Kindergarten), a child-responsive, play-based, “inquire, think, learn” EtonHouse pedagogy is followed. The early childhood curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational project of northern Italy. The international school at Broadrick and EtonHouse Suzhou in China are both IB authorized schools.  EtonHouse Newton and Orchard in Singapore are the first stand-alone pre-schools in Singapore to get the IB candidate status.

Both the IB and the EtonHouse curriculum position children as active participants in their own learning.  Children’s curiosity and skills of observation are supported and valued and are the basis of the curriculum which aims to build skills of exploration and discovery; investigation and research; collaboration and team membership abilities.

EtonHouse offers an outstanding second language programme. Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi and English as an Additional Language are offered in the different centres.  The programme equips children with strong language skills. The Pre-Sap Bilingual Mandarin programme and the integrated Mandarin programme offer children a natural and inclusive environment to develop strong language skills.

The in-house training and research and development arm for EtonHouse-EtonHouse Education Centre is an academy for early childhood teacher education and professional development. It provides a suite of academic programmes in early childhood education ranging from Certificate to Masters qualifications as well as supports the EtonHouse practitioners in continuing their professional development. The Certificate, Diploma and Graduate Diploma programmes are recognized by the MOE (Ministry of Education) and MCYS (Ministry of Community Development Youth and Sports) and are offered with accreditation from CACHE (Council for Awards in Children’s Care and Education) in the UK. The Bachelor and Masters programmes are offered in association with Roehampton University, London’s longest established teacher education provider.
