Just Imagine Series
“Just Imagine” is a series of books created by our school communities celebrating the imagination, creativity and wonder of our Early Years’ Learners.
The ability to communicate and express oneself is a crucial element of being a 21st Century Learner. Each day, as educators we are amazed by the creative literacy of children and enjoy hearing stories unfold that provoke thought, excitement and curiosity. As stories are expressed through the 100 Languages (music, dance, drama, stories, paintings, sculptures, drawings, photos etc.) we are reminded of how the imagination captures the magic of learning and supports children in the development of their creative writing, reading and storytelling skills.
In these books, we invite you to wander through the pages with your child and explore the possibilities of creating your own stories and igniting a joy for storytelling. Let your child’s imagination come to life through characters, dialogue, plots and adventures; sharing in our “Just Imagine” campaign as champions for literacy learning!
All proceeds from the sale of this book go towards our community fund.

Scholarships and bursaries
The EtonHouse Community Fund has set up a scheme for deserving families to further their children’s early years education. This assistance is for students who need support in the pre-school years. The overarching goal is to ensure that all children enjoy a high quality early years foundation that is essential for a good start in life. Here are some ways in which the fund helps children in need.
- Learning support services
- Educational field trips
“During play, ideas and skills become meaningful tools that are practised. Concepts are understood and qualities are developed that are the same required to succeed in school and life, such as thinking, problem solving and communicating,” – Dr. Robyn Anderson (Straits Times, 4 April 2016)
In our role to advocate for high quality early years education, the Play Library aims to expand the benefits of play beyond classrooms. In reaching out particularly to the low income and disadvantaged families, this initiative will provide access to stimulating, open-ended and educational resources.
The pilot centre to launch the play library project is located at E-Bridge Pre-School, Blk 17 Circuit Road Singapore 370017. The goals and objectives of our play library project are to:
- Advocate for play and encourage good early years practice at home
- Encourage opportunities for quality bonding between parent and child
- Reach out and benefit families/children at-risk
The borrowing guidelines are as follows:
- 1 educational resource per child
- Loan period of 3 weeks
- Families are to support children in the proper usage of all resources borrowed
A variety of educational resources have been carefully curated for the launch of the play library. These resources are selected based on their educational value, ease of maintenance, ease of borrowing (ease in transporting) and provision for collaborative play between parent and child.
