First Preschool At Gardens By The Bay Opening March 2023 In Singapore

EtonHouse Garden School by the Bay For Ages 9 Months To 6 Years

EtonHouse Garden School by the Bay

Located at the Bayfront Pavilion in the iconic and lush surroundings of Gardens by the Bay, the EtonHouse Garden School by the Bay will offer a unique early years program from infant care to 6 years of age.

It is the first and only preschool in the iconic Gardens by the Bay. An integral part of Singapore’s “City in Nature” vision, Gardens by the Bay is a national garden and premier horticultural attraction that showcases the best of the garden and floral artistry. To have children experience their early years in this space is truly exciting for families and educators alike.

The curriculum and environment will be specially designed and curated to be aligned with the 3 pillars – nature education, sustainability, and community.

Derived from its immediate environment, the curriculum is designed for children to spend 50% of their time outdoors in the iconic spaces of Gardens by the Bay. Apart from curated programs with nature education specialists and horticulturists from Gardens by the Bay, the school will have several exclusively created areas to offer children a unique and innovative outdoor learning experience that is unparalleled in Singapore. The Garden School is also committed to being a truly sustainable learning space that inculcates active thinking and action in the children to become change agents in their communities.

A boutique infant care program with highly personalized care and education for infants will be offered in an exclusive space within the preschool by handpicked teachers and curriculum experts.

The campus is easily accessible by private and public transport connections to the Bayfront MRT station, making pick-ups and drop-offs a fuss-free experience for families.

Founding Families will get to enjoy 50% off registration fees and an exclusive 10% off first-year school fees. Limited slots are available!
