EtonHouse Chengdu provides stimulating learning experiences that responds to children’s interests and encourages each child to reach their full potential – academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
In the Early Years, pedagogy developed by EtonHouse called Inquire-Think-Learn forms the curriculum using Reggio Emilia approaches. It invites children through authentic inquiry to construct understanding of the world in which they live This has been inspired by research and accepted best practice from around the world and in particular the Reggio Emilia educational project of northern Italy. The children are engaged in learning experiences that promote the continuous development of the social, cognitive, emotional, physical and creative abilities. They are offered a range of opportunities to explore values, broaden their communication skills, collaborate, make personal choices, group problem solve, develop ideas and research information.
The IB PYP inquiry-based approach practised at EtonHouse acknowledges children as competent thinkers and communicators. We believe children have a right to engage with a range of materials and resources designed to consolidate, extend and challenge their thinking. Emphasis is placed on first-hand practical experiences which engages the students' imagination and curiosity and develops them to become motivated, co-operative and reflective learners.
One of the greatest strengths of EtonHouse is the exceptional quality of its teaching staff who are International and Local.
