Housed in newly renovated buildings, Eton House will offer a unique programme for children aged 18 months to 4 years within an international preschool environment.
In Reggio Emilia, they refer to the learning environment as the ‘third teacher’. At Eton House , 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 a 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 sensory gardens (scented planting areas; texture gardens and outdoor musical garden) as well as a children's kitchen, or vegetable garden; water course, digging and construction areas. We have also imported a range of mobile climbing equipment ,this can be used very flexibly and ensures our teachers can plan for a variety of different climbing and co-ordination challenges.
