Opening in March 2023. For ages 9 months to 6 years.

bayfront pavillion

Located at the Bayfront Pavilion in the iconic and lush surroundings of Gardens by the Bay, the EtonHouse Garden School by the Bay will offer a unique early years programme from infant care to 6 years of age.

It is the first and only pre-school in the iconic Gardens by the Bay. An integral part of Singapore’s “City in Nature” vision, Gardens by the Bay is a national garden and premier horticultural attraction that showcases the best of garden and floral artistry. To have children experience their early years in this space is truly exciting for families and educators alike. 

The curriculum and environment will be specially designed and curated to be aligned with the 3 pillars - nature education, sustainability and community. 

Derived from its immediate environment, the curriculum is designed for children to spend 50% of their time outdoors in the iconic spaces of Gardens by the Bay. Apart from curated programmes with nature education specialists and horticulturists from Gardens by the Bay, the school will have several exclusively created areas to offer children a unique and innovative outdoor learning experience that is unparalleled in Singapore. The Garden School is also committed to being a truly sustainable learning space that inculcates active thinking and action in the children to become change agents in their communities.

A boutique infant care programme with highly personalised care and education for infants will be offered in an exclusive space within the pre-school by handpicked teachers and curriculum experts.

The campus is easily accessible by private and public transport connections to the Bayfront MRT station, making pick-ups and drop-offs a fuss-free experience for our families.

Founding Families will get to enjoy 50% off registration fees and an exclusive 10% off first-year school fees. Limited slots available!

When the school is ready, we would like to invite you to an information session and school visit and share what is unique about our school:

  • Iconic spaces that include a Supertree playground for play and exploration, which will have an explorer mezzanine deck for children to engage in sensory experiences
  • A biophilic play area
  • A bioactive terrarium
  • A discovery pond, a bug hotel and a sensory garden
  • Zero plastic use and use of natural materials. 
  • Active plastic, paper, and fabric recycling bins and compost bins to reduce food waste

  • A ‘water as a renewable energy’ project
  • A modern-day aquaponics farming programme to allow the children to experience how organisms co-exist within ecosystems in real-time. It will also include sustainability practices that will reduce waste while increasing harvesting crops, thus nurturing a natural and organic habit of mind around sustainable practices in everyday life situations
  • Healthy and sustainable cooking with a farm-to-table approach will also engage children in growing produce in the outdoor edible garden
  • Age-level placement & teacher-child ratio
