Our program is play based and follows the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. The Reggio Emilia approach is an educational approach to teaching young children that is based on four principles:
- Children must have some control over the direction of their learning.
- Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing, and hearing.
- Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world and must be allowed to explore.
- Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.
We recognize that the child’s physical, emotional, intellectual, creative and social growth are connected. We also understand the importance of the relationship between the child’s family and the daycare.
Children differ widely in learning style, ability, achievement and interests. They learn on their own time and in their own way. At our daycare, we give them the time and resources to immerse themselves fully in the play that interests them.
