Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po
The EtonHouse International Pre-School at Mayfair by the Sea situated in Pak Shek Kok is the second EtonHouse campus in Hong Kong. Part of the EtonHouse Group based in 12 countries with over 100 schools and 10,000 students, this campus offers the renowned EtonHouse international bilingual early childhood programme based on research based best practice for children from 6 months to 6 years of age. The integrated and stimulating pre-school programme offers children an engaging and meaningful learning environment where they develop into confident, competent, responsible and multilingual global citizens.
The curriculum is inspired by world renowned pre-schools and infant toddler centres in Reggio Emilia, in Northern Italy. The EtonHouse Inquire ￮ Think ￮ Learn curriculum focuses on inquiry based learning where children's ideas, interests and theories inform the design of curriculum experiences.
Young children at EtonHouse are respected as competent thinkers and communicators who are offered many opportunities to engage with a wide range of materials and resources to extend and challenge their thinking. Our curriculum invites children to explore, discover, hypothesise, predict, problem solve, construct and document their deepening understandings of the world in which we live. Our approach acknowledges the significance of socio-cultural theory in that children learn via quality interactions and relationships with people, places and things.
We encourage young children to explore their environment and express themselves using multiple languages which may include speaking, singing, movement, drawing, painting, writing, building and designing, collage, dramatic play, and music. Topics of study for project work may be captured from the children's current competencies, skills, ideas and theories, through family and community events as well as the best known interests of children (enduring childhood themes e.g. relationships, roles and responsibilities; identity).
Our learning environment is designed for children to build deep relationships with the natural world and strengthen the concepts of sustainability within our curriculum. The pre-school offers a strong and integrated second language programme where the teaching and learning of Mandarin is in a natural, meaningful environment, thus making the process natural and effective.
