Using an inquiry based approach, we purposefully and meaningfully plan and set up our classroom environment based on the children’s interest.

EtonHouse Surabaya support your child to explore and become an active, competent, and independent learner as they develop their soft skills.

The children will also have the opportunities to access literacy and develop their oral language skills as we present different medium to express their ideas, feelings and thoughts such as through music, drama, drawing, painting and other visual art.
