REGGIO EMILIA APPROACH

Children learn best and are fully engaged when they have an active part in their curriculum. Our Curriculum will be derived from the interest of the children in our care for example (boats, plants, dinosaurs, transportation, etc.) Instead of sitting back and merely observing the children teachers will actively engage themselves in all activities alongside the children. Through active listening and participation the teachers will plan projects, events and field trips to best fit the interest of the children at that time. Projects could last for a week or the whole year depending on how long the interests hold in the group. Projects will also be derived from family events or traditions, multicultural holidays and so on. The Reggio Emilia approach considers the classroom to be the “third teacher”. Documentation, plant life, Projects, pictures and dialogue will be displayed in the classroom for children and parents to enjoy relive and remember. Parents are encouraged to participate as much as possible during their child`s time with us.
