Housed in a beautiful property with large open spaces, EtonHouse International Pre-School Shanghai offers a unique programme for children aged 18 months to 6 years within an international preschool environment.
In Reggio Emilia, they refer to the learning environment as the ‘third teacher’. At EtonHouse Shanghai, our teachers pay great attention to the look and ‘feel’ of the classrooms (ambience), carefully organizing spaces for small and large group work. We believe that children have the right to a respectful environment. Through careful choice of colour, natural materials and the use of natural light, we hope not only to build relationships between the indoor and outdoor learning spaces, but to ensure our classrooms are aesthetic as well as functional spaces.
The outdoor playground has been designed specifically to ensure that children build deep relationships with the natural world. We propose to include many features such as a children’s kitchen or vegetable garden, digging and construction areas and mobile climbing equipment to offer children a rich environment full of exciting and engaging learning possibilities.
