Teachers

我叫张楠楠,来自辽宁沈阳。我毕业于南洋现代管理学院,拥有学前教育大专(华语),以及新汉语水平六级。

从2016加入伊顿学校的大家庭,很开心与孩子们一起探索学习,引导孩子们好奇心一起探索世界。探索未知!孩子们用的一百种语言的方式来表达奇妙世界。我们在校园里彼此学习共同进步,在华语的世界里探索语言的魅力。
 
孩子是一粒种子,需要我们用耐心来灌溉;需要我们给予阳光般的笑容去迎对每一个“为什么?”;当嫩芽萌发,我们用知识来田培,我们用爱来播种,希望孩子们能在蓝天下茁壮健康的成长。
 
I am Zhang Nan Nan from Liaoning, Shenyang. I hold a Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood Education (Mandarin) from Nanyang Institute of Management, as well as a Level 6 Proficiency in Chinese Language with (HSK)-Confucius InstituteHeadquarters.
 
Since 2016, I have been a part of the EtonHouse big family. I am happy to be able to learn with the children and guide them closely as they explore this great big world with a curious heart. Explore into the unknown! We learn from each other in school, make progress together, and explore the charm of Chinese Language.
 
Children are like seeds. Their growth needs to be irrigated with patience; their queries have to be attended to with sun-like smiles; and as the buds sprout, we use knowledge to cultivate the field, we use love to sow the seeds, in hopes that the children can thrive and grow healthily under the blue sky.

我是杨华,现任职伊顿助理老师,拥有学前教育大专、汉语言文学大专、汉语国际教育大专文凭。我相信每个孩子都是璞玉,若用爱来雕琢,必能发出耀眼光芒!孩子都有自己的独特个性和喜好,我会时刻尊重、关注他们的需求,努力创设良好的具创造性的语言与活动成长环境,帮助他们充分发挥自己的潜能,让他们成长为独立、自信、积极、自发的学习者。希望能和所有的孩子们在伊顿拥有充实而愉快的时光!

I am Yang Hua, currently serving as an Assistant Teacher with EtonHouse. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Teaching, as well as a Diploma in Teaching Chinese to Speakers or Other Languages.

To me, every child is like a piece of jade – when carved with love, brightness will surely shine! Every child is a unique individual with personal preferences. I will always respect and pay attention to their needs, and strive to create a positive learning environment to help them develop to their fullest potential – to be independent, confident, positive and spontaneous learners.

I hope to have a fulfilling and enjoying time with all the children I meet at EtonHouse!

Newton - Ms Doreen Ang

My name is Doreen Ang. I hold a WSQ Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education from SEED Institute and a Diploma in Mulitmedia & Infocomm Techcology from Nanyang Polytechnic. I stepped into this industry in 2007 and have been a part of EtonHouse Newton ever since.

As an early childhood educator, I strongly believe that young children learn through play. Through play, children learn skills that hone them holistically. Pre-Nursery is also the fundamental year for them to develop many life-long learning skills. Therefore, I believe in creating opportunities for the children to engage in positively. A fun environment with interesting activities is truly important.

I look forward to having a wonderful year with you and your child.

Newton - Ms Wendy Lee

I am Wendy Lee from Singapore. I have been a part of the EtonHouse Newton Family as an Assistant Teacher for more than 14 years now. I believe each child is an individual, possessing a unique personality. They learn through play and require social interaction to widen and develop healthy cognitive skills during their early childhood years.

During my free time, I love going to the parks, discovering new places to visit around Singapore and most of all, travelling for holidays with my family. I look forward to meeting up with you and your lovely children.

Hello! My name is Chua Xi Ning, and I recently completed my Diploma studies in Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

Prior to joining EtonHouse Preschool Newton as a teacher, I also went through my 6-months internship here as part of my Diploma Studies. I was particularly interested in the inquiry-based learning approach that this school takes on, and their belief of allowing children to learn through play and hands on experience aligns with my personal belief as well.

I enjoy working and learning alongside young minds while building a bond with them. I strive to ensure that every child feels a sense of belonging to the school and enjoy coming to school each day. I strongly believe that even though we are the teachers in the classroom, children have the ability to teach us too. The reason why I love this job is that I constantly learn and am reminded of qualities that children so unknowingly portray daily – kindness, silliness, innocence, just to name a few.

Through 3 years of tertiary education pursuing my Diploma, I acquired the knowledge and skills that are needed to become a qualified Early Childhood Educator. I am an enthusiastic and passionate educator with a willing heart to learn and improve daily. I hope to work with you soon.

My name is Yi Ying. I have entered the Early Childhood industry in 2017 after receiving my WSQ Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education from SEED Institute. I am currently pursuing my degree in Early Childhood Education with a Minor in Special Education at Singapore University of Social Sciences. 

Prior to joining Etonhouse Newton, I was an English Teacher in a local anchor operator Preschool. I also come from a Nutrition, Health and Wellness background, where I worked alongside schools to plan nutritious diets and health-related activities for children. 

As an early childhood educator, my belief is that play is the world of a child, where children attain holistic life skills and knowledge in a warm and caring environment. I enjoy creating meaningful hands-on activities that encourage children to explore and construct meaning to the world around them through purposeful interactions. I aim to inspire and nurture a child’s sense of individuality, resilience and curiosity where they strive to learn together at their own pace. 

During my personal time, I enjoy conquering different nature trails in our little red dot and cherishing moments with my family by the beach. I look forward to meeting your child and collaborating with you to develop them to their fullest potential!

Newton - Ms Elena Soh

My name is Elena Soh and I am from Singapore. I entered the Early Childhood industry in 2014 and have been a part of EtonHouse since 2018. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education with Singapore University of Social Sciences.

Ever since young, I’ve had the passion to inspire and work with young children. I strongly believe that all children are unique individuals who are independent and competent; who take pride in their own learning.

I am grateful to have this opportunity to work with you and your children. I look forward to grow together with them through this learning journey.

Newton - Ms Susan Teo

My name is Susan Teo and I am a teacher of Nursery 1.  I am a Singaporean and I have been working in EtonHouse since 2003.  I hold a Bachelor in Early Childhood Studies from the University of Melbourne, Australia. 

My first passion has always been to work with children and so I guess you can say that I am living my dream. I have always said that it isn’t work if you love your job. I strongly believe that children develop at their own pace and thus I do not compare one with another and give them time and space to discover their strengths and interests. 

I look forward to meeting your child and working in collaboration with you in developing your child to the best of his/her abilities. 

Newton - Ms Goh Lay Hoon

My name is Lay Hoon. I have been an Assistant Teacher with EtonHouse for more than a decade now, providing academic and talent enrichment support to the lovely children.

Together with the core teachers, the children under our care have learnt strong developmental skills in effective communication and social interaction. This prepares them for a smooth and successful transition into any mainstream academic programs of their choosing. 

I hope to work closely alongside you and your children. 

My name is Charmaine and I am currently an assistant teacher at EtonHouse Newton. I hold a professional diploma in early childhood from the National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC) and I have been in the Early Childhood sector since April 2018.

I believe that play is an essential part of every child’s learning process. Through meaningful play and positive interaction with their teachers and peers, children get to learn more about the world that they live in and also create wonderful memories that they are able to look back at whilst growing up.

I truly enjoy spending time and understanding each and every child under my care. I hope the children will get to have lots of fun together with me! 

I am Yoke Lee and I am a Singaporean. I enjoy the company of young children and view being privy to their inner thoughts and feelings as a privilege and honour. 

As an early childhood educator, I have the opportunity to be a friend and a fellow learner of young children. I also have the added responsibility of being a facilitator of their learning, a role which I cherish.

2022 marks my 8th year at EtonHouse Preschool @ Newton. It is the place where I first encountered the IB PYP program and the beginning of my journey in inquiry learning. In particular, I appreciate the 10 Learner Profile Attributes and the agency the IB program seek to develop in both the children and the adults involved in the inquiry process. The adoption of the IB PYP  have been a life transforming one for me, and it is my hope that the children in my care will similarly grow into internationally minded individuals who exemplifies the IB Learner Profile attributes of Caring, Independent and Curious Risk-takers.

My name is Si Ying, and I am currently an assistant teacher in EtonHouse Newton. I graduated with a Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education under the Singapore National Institute of Early Childhood Development and have been in this field since 2017. 

I believe that a teacher should support the children to grow as a lifelong learner. Therefore, I love to see their growth while guiding them to build a strong foundation at a young age. Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with you and your children!

My name is Pooja and I come from incredible India. I have been living in Singapore since 2003 and hold a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood from Monash University, Australia. I have a beautiful family with two lovely children. My hobbies include going for walks, gardening, travelling, and I love dogs. I joined the EtonHouse family in 2013 and have been thoroughly enjoying and growing with this esteemed organization ever since. 

Teaching at EtonHouse Newton has been, and will continue to be, an enriching experience; as I have the opportunity to work with students and teachers from various cultures around the world. Throughout my time here, I have been working with Nursery children and I truly believe that every child has a unique learning journey. As an educator, it is our foremost responsibility to provide these young learners a nurturing environment where they get the chance to grow holistically and explore at their own pace.

I follow this through my personal philosophy i.e. with interaction, Patience and Love. These meaningful words not only help me in attaining my professional goals but my personal goals as well. 

I look forward to continuing my journey at EtonHouse, Newton and adding to my collection of experience and special moments.

My name is Winona Narvaez and I am a Singaporean-Filipina. I have been teaching since 2017 with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. Currently, I am pursuing my Degree in Sociology and Political Science in the Singapore University of Social Sciences part-time.

With a globalised lens on education, and society as a whole, I have also recognized the innate zest for knowledge every person has, no matter the background. I intend to nurture children’s natural enthusiasm for learning through enriching and empowering interactions.

Hello! My name is Vicki Beins and I have been an early childhood educator for more than 10 years now. My favourite part of teaching is having the opportunity to expose children to diverse cultures and traditions. My teaching journey has spanned from local to international preschools where I have embraced the diverse needs of children from all walks of life. I have been a part of the lovely community at EtonHouse Newton since August 2018. 

As an educator, I find myself constantly inspired by the IB curriculum as it prepares children to be thinkers and inquirers.  It also resonates well with my own personal values as there is a strong emphasis on empathy, compassion and open-mindedness
