Reggio Inspired Curriculum
The foundation of the Reggio Emilia approach lies in its unique view of the child. In this approach, there is a belief that children have rights and should be given opportunities to develop their potential. Rather than being seen as the target of instruction, children are seen as having an active role as an apprentice. This role also extends to that of a researcher. Much of the instruction at Reggio Emilia schools takes place in the form of projects where children have opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesize, question, and discuss to clarify their understanding. Children are also viewed as social beings and a focus is made on the child in relation to other children, the family, teachers, and the community rather than on each child in isolation.
Child Focused Lesson Plans
All lesson plans are created based on the child's interests. We create an environment and activities that allow each child to organically learn through play, while still achieving developmental milestones. Every classroom from Infants up has lesson plans.
Diverse Learning Environments
The environment a child plays in acts as another teacher. When there are too many bright colors, furniture, etc. a child can easily get overwhelmed, which affects their learning. Our goal is to always create classroom environments that are inviting, beautiful and ready for children to learn in.
