The EtonHouse International Education Group is headquartered in Singapore with 100 schools in over 11 countries. Together these schools provide high quality education to over 15000 children globally. Over the last 21 years, EtonHouse has been at the forefront of international education offering innovative pre-schools and K-12 schools across Asia.
In the early years, an inquiry-based “Inquire-Think-Learn” curriculum, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach is followed. In the primary, secondary and high school, EtonHouse offers the globally recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme and IGCSE qualifications. There are 9 IB schools in the EtonHouse family.
In early 2014, EtonHouse was selected by the MSF in Singapore to be part of the Anchor Operator (AOP) Scheme to launch E-Bridge Pre-School, providing high quality and affordable early childhood services for Singaporean families.
Anchor operators were selected on their track record and commitment to meet the demand for early childhood services, expand outreach to low income families, and provide sectoral leadership in manpower development.
As early as 2009, EtonHouse was involved in the anchor operator scene when it became the first private operator to partner with the PAP Community Foundation (PCF) to manage Hampton Pre-School. The second Hampton campus in Tanjong Pagar was launched in 2014, a project initiated by Singapore’s Founding Father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.
EtonHouse Education Centre and REACH
EtonHouse believes that the quality of its programme is a reflection of the quality of its teachers. The EtonHouse Education Centre (EEC), a separate body of teacher trainers was created to provide on-the-job training, professional courses, workshops and conferences and research projects to enhance the quality of programmes in the schools. The EEC brought the first Reggio Children conference to Singapore.
In 2013, EtonHouse signed an agreement with Reggio Children to formalise REACH as one of the acknowledged reference points within Asia, for the dissemination of information about the Educational Project of Reggio Emilia.
REACH (Reggio Emilia in Asia for Children) provides membership and professional learning opportunities (seminars, workshops, conferences and study tours).
EtonHouse Community Fund
In 2015, the EtonHouse Community Fund was launched in 2015 to commemorate the 20th anniversary for EtonHouse. It was founded on the Group’s belief in the importance of good quality education for every child irrespective of his or her background.
A registered charity approved by the Commissioner of Charities in Singapore, the EtonHouse Community Fund has pledged $150,000 to the ECDA – KidSTART programme and $100,000 to the Punggol North Community Welfare Fund. It has also organised donation drives such as the EtonHouse Box of Joy for underprivileged children in Singapore.
