Our Curriculum & Philosophy

The schools of Reggio Emilia do not provide a model, but rather an inspiration, a challenge, and provocation to reflect on our own philosophies, theories, and practice.

Our innovative and exciting learning journeys, influenced by the Reggio Emilia experience, will encourage your child to discover themselves by exploring nature, materials, and friendships. They will be stimulated to encounter the world around them by asking questions and using their hands, minds, and emotions.  Creativity and self-expression are always encouraged. The approach to education is committed to the creation of conditions for learning that will enhance and facilitate children’s construction of “their own power of thinking”. Concepts, ideas, and interest come from the children which are developed and studied through projects and collaborative work.

Children are encouraged to express themselves in a variety of ways, referred by the Reggio educators as the Hundred Languages. These many languages include the spoken word, drawing, painting, sculpture, music, drama, puppetry and movement.

We are committed to: The National Framework; Play Based Learning Journeys; Natural Outdoor Environment; Embracing Diversity; Wellbeing:  Professional Development & Community Involvement.
