Located in Xuzhou International Science and Education Industrial Park, the EtonHouse International Pre-School, Xuzhou will offer a unique programme for children aged 18 months to 6 years within an international pre-school environment.
In Reggio Emilia, they refer to the learning environment as the ‘third teacher’. The EtonHouse Pre-School in Suzhou is in a purpose built environment that offers a unique and innovative learning experience for children that is based on international best practice. Apart from dedicated facilities for the library and ICT, the campus has interesting features and large outdoor spaces that integrate the indoors and outdoors to provide a high quality learning experience for children.
The teachers pay great attention to the look and ‘feel’ of the classrooms (ambience), carefully organizing spaces for small and large group work. Children have a right to a respectful environment. Through careful choice of colour, natural materials and the use of natural light, the environment design helps to build relationships between the indoor and outdoor learning spaces and ensures our classrooms are aesthetic as well as functional spaces.
The school will also include many other features such as a children's kitchen or vegetable garden, digging and construction areas and mobile climbing equipment to offer children a rich environment full of exciting and engaging learning possibilities.
