Progressive Education Philosophy
We take a progressive approach that is inspired by the Reggio Emilia concept that was developed in Italy after World War II by local parents and an educator named Loris Malaguzzi. There are a number of fundamental principles contained within the Reggio Emilia approach that guide our curriculum. It starts with the belief that children are competent and capable individuals and can be partners in creating their own learning experiences.
We also place an emphasis on social interaction, since we know children learn from one another, extend what they can do, and gain an understanding of their place within groups and important social skills. Our teachers are facilitators who encourage our Coral Gables, Florida preschool students to communicate and ask questions. We don’t answer the questions as owners 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 while maintaining an environment that feels like an extension of the home. Teachers are constantly documenting the learning process and children’s thinking.
