Experience the Magic of Summer at Reggio & Co.
At Reggio & Co., we are delighted to introduce our extraordinary Reggio Emilia preschool and Kindergarten Summer Session, specially crafted to empower creative thinkers and foster curiosity in your child. Allow us to highlight the exceptional features and offerings that make our program and school-family something special:
Reggio Emilia Approach:
Our school proudly embraces the Reggio Emilia philosophy, a renowned educational approach that places children at the center of their learning processes. This child-centered approach fosters exploration, creativity, and critical thinking. Through hands-on experiences and project-based learning, your child will embark on a summer filled with wonder, discovery, self-expression... and CHILDHOOD.
Water Play and Outdoor Learning:
We are outside-people and honor the developmental benefits of our children having access to daily water play and outdoor exploration. Our summer session incorporates a variety of water-based activities and ample opportunities for outdoor learning, allowing children to connect with nature, appreciate their surroundings, and engage in active exploration.
Projects are at the heart of our Reggio Emilia curriculum, welcoming students the time and space to go deep in their learning. Inspired by the interests and ideas of the children, our educators facilitate project-based learning experiences that spark curiosity and creativity. Through in-depth investigations, children actively explore concepts, collaborate with peers, conduct research, document their findings, and present their discoveries. This approach empowers children to become active participants in their own learning process and cultivates a lifelong love for learning.
Our teachers love their jobs. We employee a team of people who are deeply committed to the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach and create a nurturing environment where every child feels valued and respected. They understand the importance of using language that uplifts and empowers children, promoting positive self-esteem and a love for communication. Our educators foster an atmosphere of kindness, empathy, and respect, where children feel safe to express themselves and engage in meaningful conversations. They value collaboration and self-reflection to stay flexible to best practices and the needs of our ever-evolving community.
Documentation and Reflection:
The Reggio team believes in the power of documentation to make children's learning visible and to encourage reflection. Throughout the Summer Session, our educators diligently capture children's experiences, insights, and progress through photographs, written observations, and artwork. This documentation serves as a valuable tool for reflection and collaboration, allowing educators, parents, and children to revisit and celebrate the learning journey together.
Parent Engagement and Collaboration:
We recognize the vital role that parents play in their child's education. Our school values and encourages active parental engagement. We offer regular opportunities for parent-teacher communication, parent involvement, and events. By fostering a strong partnership, we can create a cohesive learning community that supports the growth and development of each child.
Choosing the right summer program is a significant decision, and we are confident that Reggio & Co. offers an exceptional experience that distinguishes us from more compliance-based programs. With our commitment to the Reggio Emilia approach, developmentally appropriate practices, respectful educators, parent engagement, and our determination to preserve childhood, Reggio & Co is equipped to provide a transformative summer session for your child(ren)!
