Young children at EtonHouse are respected as competent thinkers and communicators who are offered many opportunities to engage with a wide range of materials and resources to extend and challenge their thinking. Our curriculum invites children to explore, discover, hypothesise, predict, problem solve, construct and document their deepening understandings of the world in which we live. Our approach acknowledges the significance of socio-cultural theory in that children learn via quality interactions and relationships with people, places and things.
We encourage young children to explore their environment and express themselves using multiple languages which may include speaking, singing, movement, drawing, painting, writing, building and designing, collage, dramatic play, and music. Topics of study for project work may be captured from the children’s current competencies, skills, ideas and theories, through family and community events as well as the best known interests of children (enduring childhood themes e.g. relationships, roles and responsibilities; identity).
Our learning environment is designed for children to build deep relationships with the natural world and strengthen the concepts of sustainability within our curriculum. The pre-school offers a strong and integrated second language programme where the teaching and learning of Mandarin is in a natural, meaningful environment, thus making the process natural and effective.
