Guarantee your child a strong Chinese foundation

EtonHouse Zhong Hua Pre-School at 681 Bukit Timah is the first child care centre in Singapore to exclusively offer a Chinese only programme.    

Why early exposure to the Chinese language is important

There is growing evidence that children should be immersed in a language for at least 4-5 hours in a day to make language learning sustainable.

Every day, children are exposed to the Chinese language at all times in school. This exclusive Chinese-speaking environment, which many do not have at home, is essential in giving children a solid foundation in the language. With a considerable amount of time communicating in Chinese, children are able to appreciate how useful and relevant the language is to their daily life. Over time, they are able to think and understand concepts in Chinese.

We believe that the Chinese language is a life skill and an essential communication tool.

Delivered in our inquiry-based environment, children are exposed to Chinese in a meaningful and enjoyable manner. During their formative years, the focus is very much on the 听(listening) and  (speaking) aspects before we proceed to build up proper sentence structure and vocabulary, with the kindergarten level focused on reading() and writing ().
