The Nursery School follows the progressive educational philosophy of developmental interaction with inspiration from the Reggio Emilia preschools. The “Reggio approach” reminds us to look at children’s competence and potential rather than their limitations. Focusing on what children can do (instead of what they cannot do) leads to higher levels of thinking and performance.
