Program Description

Inspired by the the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education, our play-based curriculum is based on a process of observation and reflection, where children play an active role as co-constructors of their own learning. As children get to know the school environment, the available materials and their peers, a shared context develops, stories unfold and a new curriculum emerges. Teachers take every opportunity to foster conversation and open-ended questions, reflect on children’s experiences, develop theories, think about how to navigate social situations together and be partners in developing short and long terms projects and investigations.
