Our Curriculum

Reggio Emilia Project Approach
Children form an understanding of themselves and their place in the world through their interactions with others. There is a strong focus on social collaboration where each child is an equal participant having their thoughts and questions valued.

Creative Curriculum
Through The Creative Curriculum our students are able to learn through a child-initiated, hands-on approach that meets the individual needs of each child while stimulating the social, emotional, language, cognitive, literacy, mathematics, physical and artistic developmental areas.
