Playgroup (9 – 22 months)
‘Parent and Me’ Programme at Sentosa
The EtonHouse inquiry-based programme is based on research and international best practice. Inspired by the internationally renowned Reggio Emilia pre-schools, the programme offers a child responsive interactive learning environment. The curriculum encourages children to develop critical and creative thinking skills, social competence and bilingual skills along with competencies around literacy and numeracy. The ‘Parent and Me’ programme provides young children and parents a unique experience to work together in a learning environment that is facilitated by qualified and experienced early childhood educators. The programme has a Mandarin teacher participating for part of the session to ensure that children develop strong second language skills at a very young age.
For a unique experience, EtonHouse is offering a ‘Parent and Me’ adult accompanied programme where you can immerse yourself along with your child in our beautifully designed learning environment at EtonHouse Sentosa. Sign up for a truly engaging programme with your child and experience the EtonHouse inquiry based learning approach.
