Inspired by the the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education, our play-based curriculum is based on a process of observation and reflection, where children play an active role as co-constructors of their own learning. As children get to know the school environment, the available materials and their peers, a shared context develops, stories unfold and a new focus of study emerges. Through conversations and open-ended questions, teachers take every opportunity to narrate and reflect on children's experiences, develop theories, think about how to navigate social situations together and be partners in developing short and long terms projects and investigations.
