Principal’s Welcome



Kelly McCann, Principal

Kelly has a degree from the University of Auckland, New Zealand where she graduated with a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood Education in 2008.  Kelly has been teaching in the early childhood sector for twelve years, ten of which were in her homeland of New Zealand and two years at EtonHouse, Pudong South Road, Shanghai campus. Kelly has held leadership roles in New Zealand where she was a Head Teacher with the New Zealand Kindergarten Association, as well as a Centre Manager in a Pre-School setting.

Welcome to EtonHouse International Pre-School, Lujiazui, Shanghai.  Our Pre-School provides top quality early childhood education and care for children aged eighteen months to six years of age.  Our campus is centred in the heart of Lujiazui, nestled under the Shanghai Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Centre.

We believe that young children are confident and competent young learners, all bringing their uniqueness to the learning community.  Play is valued as child’s work and through careful observations and planning we are able to identify opportunities and possibilities for teaching and learning and act upon these in meaningful ways.  Our aim is to inspire our students through EtonHouse’s Inquire-Think-Learn curriculum and the International Baccalaureate PYP curriculum, by bringing the learning to life.  We are a family orientated community of learners who value the strong and effective relationships we build with one another.  Our environment is warm and caring and nurtures children’s wellbeing. We want our students to be prepared for a future of life-long learning.  We encourage risk-taking, inquiry, exploration and adventure!

As principal of EtonHouse Lujiazui, I am proud to be leading a Pre-School that works in partnership with parents in preparing our young children for living in the 21st century.  I really look forward to meeting you and sharing our exciting and innovative learning environment with you.
