EtonHouse Vanda Awarded “Outstanding Centre for Teaching and Learning”24 Sep
September 2014, EtonHouse Pre-School Vanda has received the “Outstanding Centre for Teaching and Learning Award 2014” from Singapore’s Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA). This award recognises child care centres and kindergartens which have excellent processes and learning environments that support high quality programme activities to promote children’s holistic development.
The ECDA Awards are the highest national award for the preschool sector. Held in conjunction with the annual Early Childhood Conference on 19 September 2014, the event is a celebration of early years practice in Singapore.
In addition, EtonHouse Vanda also received the SPARK (Singapore Pre-Schools Accreditation Framework) re-certification which recognises the pre-school’s excellence across Leadership, Planning and Administration, Staff Management, Resources, Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Health, Hygiene and Safety. The centre was recognised and commended for progress in teaching and learning since their first SPARK accreditation in 2011. It was awarded a mastery level (the highest level possible) in its general principles for pedagogy, teaching and learning as well as curriculum.
Earlier in August 2014, the Vanda campus was awarded the Silver band of the Community in Bloom (CIB) Awards organised by the National Parks Board to recognise and reward gardening efforts by community groups in housing estates, schools and organisations.
At EtonHouse, we continuously strive to excel and work collaboratively towards the common goal of excellence and leadership in educational practice. The teaching team, parents and children at EtonHouse Vanda exemplify this spirit of collaboration. These achievements are a reinforcement of the holistic, meaningful and high quality learning experiences that form the hallmark of an EtonHouse education.
