The world-renowned Reggio Emilia Approach originated in its namesake town in Italy after World War II. Key elements of this approach emphasis a progressive, cooperative and holistic early childhood education for children from birth to 6 years of age.
The Reggio Emilia Approach emphasises hands-on discovery learning that allows the child to use all their senses and all their languages to learn.
Children are viewed as competent, curious, full of potential, and interested in connecting to the world around them. They use a hundred different ways of thinking, of discovering, of learning. Teachers are cognizant of each child’s potential and construct their work, activities and the environment for the children to respond appropriately. This will be evident to you during your visit to our nursery.
The teachers, parents and children are collaborators in the process of learning. The parent is an essential resource for the child’s learning. We hold special events throughout the school year, to encourage parental participation and to foster community development.
The environment is the third teacher. Based on the Reggio Emilia approach, the design and features of our nursery are carefully built to create a rich, calm and inspiring environment, to promote holistic development of children.
