Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.
The British Pre-Prep, Dongtan House features an integrated learning environment specially designed to stimulate the learning and development of young children from 18 months upwards. The environment is culturally diverse with a wonderful mix of Korean and expatriate families. The children are therefore immersed in an international environment ensuring that children pick up languages spontaneously through a range of meaningful learning experiences in diversity. They learn how to respect diverse traditions and interact with teachers and friends from other nationalities.
We offer the renowned inquiry based approach to learning where children’s ideas, interests and theories inform the design of curriculum experiences. We encourage young children to explore their environment and express themselves using multiple ways of learning.
The children at Dongtan House are respected as competent thinkers and communicators who are offered many opportunities to engage with a wide range of materials and resources to extend and challenge their thinking. We aim to support the holistic development of the learner as a whole person, that is their physical, emotional, social, intellectual, creative and language development.
Starting formal education is a big milestone for every child and parent. All of the Dongtan House staff will do our very best to provide a safe environment in which children grow in independence and take responsibility for their learning.
We look forward to working with you for your child’s education journey.
With sincere respect,

We believe that teachers matter. Teachers educate us on far more than history, mathematics, art, music, or English. They teach us about hard work and the importance of doing the best we can in all that we do. They inspire us to pursue our dreams and give us the tools and support we need to succeed.
