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 Jurah. I am a certified L2 teacher and obtained my Diploma in Early Childhood in Care and Education from SEEDS Institute (now known as National Institute of Early Childhood Development) and have been in this industry for 5 years. I enjoy teaching children through play as it helps them develop their social and cognitive skills. Not only that, they will gain self-confidence so they are able to engage in new experiences and environments.

During my leisure time, I enjoy reading and spending quality time with my family, such as rock climbing or going to the beach for a relaxing day. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your children!

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!

I am Jasmine and I had been in the Early Childhood industry for 14 years. I hold a diploma in Early Years Enrichment Education and two certificates namely,  Fundamental in Early Childhood Education and Infant Care.

I have been with EtonHouse since 2013 and Newton is my third school. I love working with young children because I feel that they are constantly curious and love to explore. Each and every child is unique and competent to accomplish great things. As an educator, my passion is to work hands in hands with them to grow with them to reach their full potential.

My favourite quote:

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

I hope I will be able to support your child to the fullest.

I was born and raised in Bangladesh in the city of Feni. I hold a degree in History from Eden University College, Dhaka. After having a family of my own, my husband and I decided to move to Singapore in 2006 to give my children a better education. Since then, we have settled in Singapore and acquired citizenships in 2014. 

I started my teaching journey at Bangladesh Language Cultural Foundation (BLCF) which is under the board of BTTSAL from MOE. I taught Bengali to Primary 5 students once a week for almost a decade while caring for my children. My passion for children and love to interact with them led me to pursue my study as a Preschool teacher. I graduated with an Advanced Certificate In Early Years (ACEY) with Asian International College. In 2017, I started my first job at Star Tots Playgroup as a Lead Teacher for over 5 years and now I will be the Assistant Teacher in EtonHouse.

I look forward to being part of the children’s learning and growing journey.

My name is Joe and I joined the Early Childhood industry back in 2016 after receiving my Professional Diploma in Early Childhood from KLC International Institute.

As an early childhood educator, I believe that each child is an unique individual who learns and develops at their own pace in a loving and nurturing environment. I also strongly believe that every child should not only be seen, but heard. When young, I was a shy and sensitive child. I found it challenging to express myself so I often felt misunderstood. My  experience transcends my sensitivity towards the needs of children, as I would never want them to feel misunderstood and unloved.

I am honoured to be part of this formative years of your child and be part of their learning journey. I believe that working closely with parent and building a strong communication bridge is important part of the process.

I look forward to embark on this learning journey to help your little one achieve success.

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. 

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. 

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! 

Gaia

Hello my name is Gaia.

I hold a diploma in Early Childhood Education (Literacy).

I have been a part of the Early childhood field since 2019. Having worked with children

between the ages of 2 to 4 years old, I have encountered countless children, each different

and developing at their own pace. I trust that each child will develop in their own time, hence flexibility and patience is valued in my classroom.

I believe play, outdoor experiences, and forming close relationships contribute to

children’s learning, and I strive to explore these in depth as I take on the role of a teacher.

In my free time, I enjoy creating art or spending time at various natural spaces in Singapore,

such as the beach. I also look forward to traveling to new destinations every year!

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.

Currently, I am pursuing a part-time Bachelor’s Degree in Counselling with Singapore University of Social Sciences.

I enjoy learning and growing alongside children. Looking forward to meeting you and your children!

My name is Rozita Abdul Aziz and I am Singaporean. Formerly, I was in two other preschools before I joined the EtonHouse family since 2005. Working with young children have been fulfilling and satisfying for me ever since I embarked myself in this industry. I believe that children build our future development if we instigate a positive approach. As a strong believer in child development, I inspire to share my experiences and skills to impact a more holistic approach to the educational programme. I wish to see children in a more cognitive learning environment. 

Asides that, I take the role as a co-teacher during the holiday programme. With an abundance of experience and Knowledge I’ve acquired thus far, I demonstrate what I’ve learned in the different learning engagements.

I also believe that children learn through role play and stories. Creating a role play in story telling with children is encouraging. It is important for children to enjoy themselves and participate during story-telling. 

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.

Apart from teaching, reading is another passion of mine. I also spend much of my free time cycling and exploring new recipes with my daughter over the weekends. 

 

My name is Uma and I’m from Singapore. I graduated with a diploma in early childhood care and education and entered the industry in 2019.

I believe that it is important to understand every child’s needs and learning through positive and supportive relationships. My personal teaching philosophy is that children are independent learners that are able to contribute to their own learning. As an educator, my role is to embrace their individuality and provide the right space to express themselves.
