Progressive Education Philosophy
We take a progressive approach that is inspired by the Reggio Emilia concept that was developed in and around this Italian city after World War II by local parents and a psychologist named Loris Malaguzzi. There are a number of fundamental principles contained within the Reggio Emilia approach that we inculcate into our curriculum. It starts with the belief that children can be self-motivated, and they can direct their own learning experiences when they are genuinely interested in a subject.
We also place an emphasis on social interaction, because children can learn from one another, and they can gain an understanding of their place within groups. Our teachers are facilitators that encourage our Coral Gables, Florida preschool students to communicate and ask questions. We don’t necessarily answer the questions as superior givers of knowledge; we collaborate as a group to find the answers together.
The day care center/pre school environment has a very big impact on the learning process. We make sure that everything is arranged in an orderly fashion, with plenty of natural light and pleasing spatial relationships. Learning materials and tools are carefully selected to give children the opportunity to create and build things that they are interested in. Their thoughts are externalized through their creations, and this is a powerful learning experience.
