Description: Our philosophy is centered around Developmentally Appropriate Practices and an attempt to be Reggio Inspired. Our curriculum is designed to develop children’s knowledge and skills in all developmental areas and establish a foundation for lifelong learning. The curriculum and instruction is age-appropriate, integrated, hands-on, and responsive to individual differences in ability and interests.
We believe that education is a process, brought on by the child’s interaction with their immediate world. It is through playing in this world that each child is encouraged and stimulated to explore, to experiment and to discover, using their own unique learning style and interests. We use an emergent curriculum that builds upon the interests of the children. Teachers document children’s work, validating the children’s abilities and enabling ongoing assessment. This approach helps children to develop curiosity, creativity, differing modes of communication, concentration, listening, negotiation and observation skills.
