Parents Discover Key to Their Children’s Learning Success
One of the beautiful things that ETON International School brings together is the understanding between parents and their children. What makes ETON unique among a host of schools out there is its foresight to see their students’ potential even before they even realize it themselves. Grounding its curriculum on the Learning Style Profile of Dunn and Dunn, the school highlights the importance of knowing the child, inside and out, and it shares that precious knowledge to the parents, so they can also be effective teachers to their kids.
Every year, ETON conducts an orientation for parents and it devotes a large chunk of this activity to explaining the Learning Styles concept. The school believes that the parents are the first teachers of their kids and the home is the first classroom. Through collaborative assessment, ETON gathers the necessary information on the learning styles of both students and parents and carefully and comprehensively explains to them the insightful results. Based on the assessment results, the school bridges a healthy discussion between parents and their children on the similarities and differences of their learning behavior. The parents, then, would know how smart their children are, and why are they that smart. In turn, the kids will likewise gain an increase in self-awareness.
It is ETON’s goal to help the students unlock their potential and become successful learners—with the love and support of their committed parents. The school helps the parents to better understand and deal with their children’s strengths, as well as develop areas that need further guidance and improvement. Unlike other schools, ETON customizes its teaching style with their students’ learning preferences.
ETON parents are different from parents of other schools because they are more aware of their children’s multiple intelligence and learning styles. This unique and distinct awareness greatly contributes to the holistic development of their children. Parents are grateful to ETON for giving them the opportunity to know their child better and making each child better.
