OUR PHILOSOPHY

Using a play-based model and incorporating Reggio Emilia fundamentals, our playschool caters to each individual child. Through the Reggio Emilia approach, we believe that children are born their own persons. We believe that each child is endowed with "100 languages" with which they express themselves. These "languages" encompass music, art, imaginative play and so much more... We encourage children to use these "languages" in their everyday life and to express themselves anyway they see fit.

We believe that the child is an active participant in their own learning. Our goal as facilitators is to provide the environment, materials, and guidance to allow our children to direct their own learning and pursue their interests. Through observation and documentation we cater lessons and activities to each child's innate interests and allow them to explore the materials and their surroundings in their own time and in their own way. The environment is considered the "third teacher" after the parent and teacher, and is designed in a way to encourage independent exploration and learning. 

The Reggio Emilia approach guides us in believing that parents are their children's first teachers. The teacher, parent, and child are all collaborators in the process of learning. Though we are not a cooperative, we highly encourage parent/family involvement in our classroom and will have many opportunities to volunteer and participate in our classroom activities and beyond.
