Our Reggio Emilia inspired approach portrays a unique view of the child: each seen as beautiful, powerful, competent, creative, curious, and full of potential.
Placed at the centre of the curriculum, children are encouraged to select and explore topics and activities for themselves, developing deeper engagement from the child, building independence and stimulating curiosity. Rather than being seen as the target of instruction, children are seen as having the active role of an apprentice and researcher.
A lot of our activities take the form of projects where children have opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesise, question, and discuss to clarify their understanding. Children are also viewed as social beings and a focus is made on the child in relation to other children, the family, the teachers, and the community rather than on each child in isolation.
