CURRICULUM IN ACTION
TOWARD A BETTER WORLD
Working Together to Brighten Someone's Day
After a discussion about how not all children are able to be home during the holidays, the class gathered up colorful paper, markers, crayons, and other materials, and worked together to create cards for hospitalized children all over the country.
Technology In Our Centers
Technology and digital media can enrich learning experiences, but it requires more than passive consumption. We use electronic technology for collaboration, inquiry, research, and creation, and work with experts to ensure our approach is aligned with both emerging research and 21st century learning.
Environment As The Third Teacher
We believe in the Reggio Emilia philosophy that recognizes environment as a teacher. We carefully choose materials, and customize inspiring spaces that are respectful of children
Places where anything is possible
Every one of our spaces offers rich, open-ended experiences that engage children and allow them to confidently explore.
