Message From The Principal
It is my pleasure to welcome our current and future families to EtonHouse International Pre-School Franchise • An Phu in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Our Pre-School is established upon the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood education, to which our EtonHouse emergent‘ Inquire, Think, Learn’ curiculum is closely allied. These approaches are deliberately aligned with current educational models of child-centred brain-based learning, encompassing play and inquiry.
The philosophy behind the Reggio Emilia approach embodies the intrinsic belief that all children learn through play and as individuals have their own learning pathway. Our job as educators is to provide children with the environment and experiences to stimulate their natural curiosity. Then, as skillful observers and participants, we construct thought-provoking and extending questions. These support understanding and, ultimately, learning.
The community approach to learning is the basis for our preschool as we work together with each child. You are invited to become a member of our EtonHouse • An Phu community, and join in our activities as we grow your children together.
If you have not met me, or visited our new Centre, please feel welcome to come along. A phone call (028 6287 0804) to let us know you’re coming means we can set aside time to be with you. We want to answer all questions and share our learning spaces and pedagogical approach with you fully. I look forward to welcoming you soon!
