Our teaching philosophy is based on the Reggio approach to education. Developed in the town of Reggio-Emilia, Italy, this method respects the innate ability of children to explore and learn from the world around them. Rather than give them answers, we guide them as they question, discover, test and exhibit ideas in their own individual ways. Our curriculum is child-centered, in that students’ interests and curiosity play a critical role in our lesson planning. Teachers collaborate, and design lesson plans that focus on what children are interested in while making sure to cover all disciplines in the course of their exploration, from math to science to music, art, drama and language. We feel this approach teaches children to explore topics in great detail and better equips them to become life-long learners who enjoy the educational process.
