Reggio-Inspired, Emergent Curriculum

We follow an emergent, play-based curriculum, meaning that activities and projects are dictated by students’ naturally evolving interests. Our guiding philosophy is the Reggio Emilia Philosophy of early childhood education, which places an emphasis on art, environment, and community. Roll over the images at the right to see how our philosophy translate into students' daily activities.

Social and Emotional Growth

Solving problems, engaging in social groups with peers, and practicing empathy are important skills that provide a strong foundation for children's long term development.  Children who learn these skills in their preschool years are more successful in their later schooling and life.  Fostering students' social and emotional growth is a primary focus of our program and we capitalize on opportunities to learn and practice these skills through naturally occurring interactions in the classroom as well as planned activities.
