Voices from Our Community
We like to think of the EtonHouse community as a microcosm of the world — over 70 nationalities make up our beautifully diverse and tightly-knit family in our Singapore schools alone.
Every family’s EtonHouse journey is unique and special. Regardless of the path, we are always touched to hear when parents and ex-students tell us how they will never forget their years with us. Here are some of our favourite memories.
Teaching is not just a job for our educators — it is a calling. It is a culture that is ingrained in our teachers, championed by the leadership team, and perpetuated by every member of the teaching staff. Our recruitment process doesn’t just look for experience and qualification but a certain passion to make a difference to the lives of children.
Being uncompromising in our hiring standards has paid off. Our teachers go above and beyond their duty to make learning authentic and child-responsive, and they do so happily. Need proof that our teachers love their jobs? 75% of our educators in leadership teams have been with us for at least 5 years, and some for as long as EtonHouse has been around.

“It’s says it all that our mornings are filled with excitement to get ready to go to school. Luca can’t wait to get out the door to see his teacher, Miss Nikki and teaching assistant, Miss Gloria. The welcome we receive every morning at the gate is fantastic. Everyone is so upbeat and positive. I can’t begin to express how grateful I am that we found Eton House Bahrain.”

Batool’s and Yunu’s Mom
We would like to express our gratitude totheEtonHouse team for the most creative, joyful and happiest experiences for our children- Batool and Yunus.
As a working mother, my daughter has attended nursery from an early age however since joining EtonHouse, I have felt that she is in a setting that really and truly cares for her wellbeing, that Batool is part of a family and a community. Batool is always excited to attend school, and she is happy when I collect her from school- she never wants to leave. As many working mothers will appreciate, this has meant the world to me: to know she is happy and safe and cared for. This peace of mind is immeasurable. Batool has blossomed into a confident girl who used to be shy. With the help of her teachers and friends, she now loves to socialise and play. The skills she has learned and developed in two short terms have been truly remarkable.
Yunus has also blossomed with EtonHouse, previous schools were unable to accommodate his medical needs but EtonHouse provided a safe environment for him to be himself whilst also making friends. The family atmosphere and small class sizes made a huge difference, everyone came together to make sure the school was safe for him to attend. Yunus felt a sense of belonging, and like Batool, he too found the warmth of EtonHouse a welcoming place to be his true self- a happy and sociable child with friends and teachers who he respected and is respected in return. EtonHouse removed the loneliness that Yunus felt and filled it with the joy and wonder of learning and play.
It is true to say that EtonHouse feels like a second home for our children. All children are welcome and loved regardless of their culture or background.
Throughout the school closure, both Batool and Yunus asked every day when they would return to EtonHouse. We are so glad to be part of the EtonHouse community and are glad that Yunus and Batool are able to continue their education in Year 1 and beyond into the new primary school.
Thank you to all of their teachers for having such an impact on their lives. Fatima and Zahraa

Passing by EtonHouse always evokes a feeling of warmth and fondness in me. Despite having only attended Kindergarten here, it has made a great impact on my life. My strongest memory of my time there was this phrase in a Chinese song that I learnt from my teachers. It said something about, when you win a medal or achieve something great, come back to visit your teachers and they’ll be proud of you. So for a good part of my life, I tried to do my best. I used to think about my kindergarten teachers quite often and made sure that my achievements might one day make them proud of me.
