School Notes:

My School’s philosophy is based on the Reggio Emilia Approach. Reggio-Inspired curriculum is flexible and emerges from children’s ideas, thoughts, and observations. The Reggio goal is to cultivate within children a lifelong passion for learning and exploration. Our program also has a strong art focus and our school has it's own Art Studio space. Children from each classroom visit this space on a weekly basis and work with the Art Studio teacher exploring various art concepts.
