EtonHouse Korea offers international education for expatriate and Korean children at three campuses. One in Hannam-dong near Yongsan, one in Bundang near K16 and one in Dongtan near Osan Air Base. This school practices a hands on, child-led, inquiry based curriculum, modeled after the Reggio Emilia approach. All classes are taught in English. They have small classes with one native English speaker teacher and one bilingual teacher per classroom. All 3 campuses have comfortable and wonderful facilities. They offer specialty classes such as gym, art, science, Mandarin Chinese, computer classes, etc Hours are from 9am to 2:30pm or 9am to 3:30pm depending on the age of the child.
PROS: My daughter loves her school and she is learning so much. They involve parents in a lot of assemblies and celebrations such as Halloween.
CONS: They wear uniforms Monday-Thursday and Fridays are wear whatever you want day. My daughter is in the stage when she only wants to wear pink dresses so sometimes convincing her to wear her uniform is a challenge.
Cost: Varies per campus and age of the child but generous military discounts are given which makes the school affordable. Contact the school directly for specific information.

For all you parents looking for a preschool that suits your kids, we’re hoping to add a little something to aid in your search. Parents of children who attend various preschools here in Korea have filled out a series of questions about the schools for the benefit of the rest of us. We welcome more than one voice on each school since everyone has a different experience, so please feel free to add in your two cents in the comments.
If your child attends a school that has not been reviewed on this site, please contact our Submissions Manager for the template.
