A Better Way To Learn

We offer a wide range of high quality teaching and discovery experiences.

Each child has a unique way of learning so there is no pre-set curriculum at the Emilia School. We provide each child with an engaging, flexible curriculum based on the Reggio Emilia Philosophy combined with an Emergent Curriculum and the Steam Method.

Our Approach To Learning

The Emilia School embraces the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning.

The Reggio Emilia philosophy is that each child is deeply curious and full of potential. By allowing children to have a voice and learn at their own pace, their curiosity will drive them to understand their world and their place in it. Teachers are to act as their “research partners” and will guide them in activities based on their interests in a supportive and enriching environment. Reggio inspired activities are designed to help children learn and discover, build self confidence, and develop critical thinking and social skills.

About Emergent Curriculum

Children learn best when their interests are captured through expressive arts and long term projects. Teachers start the process by questioning the children about what they’re interested in. The answers to those questions – or to random questions children ask that show their curiosity about a subject-become the focus of each project. Since the child chooses the topic of interest, the project becomes a passion more than an assignment.

About The STEAM Method

Our teachers infuse the STEAM method into the curriculum to prepare children with skills needed for their future success. Skills such as thinking creatively, solving problems, taking risks, strengthen with a hands-on approach teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. We understand that with learning these subjects it isn’t just about memorization. It is in understanding the why – and in exploring that factor hands-on, children can better grasp how things work and learn to invent and create using these newly acquired concepts.
