Early Childhood Center Curriculum

Reggio Emilia

Adhering to our belief that each child comes to us as a capable and competent learner who is rich with potential, the Reggio Emilia approach allows us to truly honor each child’s readiness level and interests. We take a project-based approach to learning as teachers work one-on-one and in groups with students teaching and observing their natural inclinations. As teachers observe and document student inquiry, projects are planned around these themes. Teachers work with students as facilitators to their learning and provide students with the opportunities to expand their knowledge through multi-faceted methods.

“Care Theory”

Equally important as academics is our research-based caring and nurturing environment. We ascribe to Nel Noddings “Care Theory” and believe that each child should feel both safe and cared for. The ethics of care argues that all people want to be cared for and that caring is reciprocal in nature. Not only do we believe this caring relationship to be central to teacher and child, but we teach children how to care for others and their world through modelling, dialogue, and practice.
