Our curriculum is a Reggio Emilia approach this means that we see children as very competent protagonist and initiator who interacts with their environment.  

The children are allowed to follow their own interest in the classroom and we use these interests to guide their learning.  Our environments are seen as the third educator.  The children use the materials in the classrooms to represent concepts that they are learning in a hands-on way.

In our Reggio-inspired classrooms, the teachers use a variety of documentation methods, such as cameras, tape recorders and journals, to track children's thoughts and ideas as they play together or work with materials.  These documentations are then used for assessing the children in their developmental stages.                

We view the parent as an essential resource for the child's learning. To foster community, we host a variety of events throughout each school year, including conferences and special lectures for parents.
