Housed in two sprawling buildings, Mountbatten 718 offers a unique programme for children aged 18 months to 6 years within an international preschool environment.
In Reggio Emilia, they refer to the learning environment as the ‘third teacher’. At Mountbatten 718, 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.
The pre-school has sensory gardens (scented planting areas; texture gardens), a children's kitchen, a vegetable garden, a water course, digging and construction areas, a large and well-equipped library and well-resourced classrooms. We have also imported a range of mobile climbing equipment from Australia, which can be used very flexibly and ensures that our teachers can plan for a variety of different climbing and co-ordination challenges.
EtonHouse Mountbatten 718 serves nutritious and balanced meals that inculcate in children an interest in healthy eating habits. You can download the menu here.
