Freedom to Express Oneself
An Enabling Environment
“A school is a living organism, a place of shared relationships among the children, the teachers, and the parents that creates a feeling of belonging in a world that is alive, welcoming and authentic”
The school environment and inspiring space design play a central role within our play-based Reggio-inspired program. The environment plays such a significant role in Intentional Teaching Based programs. We empower children to explore, inquire, try new things, work together, and make sense of the world around them. We design our schools to be real-world manifestations of children’s interests, passions, and curiosities.
Engaging all senses
Our schools have a wide variety of learning spaces designed to engage all senses of children. Learning environments are divided into well-labeled spaces for art, design, pretend-play, block play, water play, sand play, math, writing, storytelling, music, STEM, and free play. These varied learning spaces provide children with a broad range of learning experiences and help maximize discovery and problem-solving.
Environment as a tool to promote literacy and
Our classroom environments support literacy and mathematics development by being print rich i.e we have picture books with rich illustrations, interactive books, books of different textures, menus, recipes, labels, signs, printed routines and directions, student work, alphabet displays, word walls, manipulative and blocks. Teachers use these visual tools to have meaningful conversations with children, helping them develop a richer vocabulary across a wide range of topics.
Learning to fully express
With the right challenges, children develop good judgment, persistence, courage, and self-confidence. Our schools are equipped with rich natural features, both indoors and outdoors, that provide children with a plethora of opportunities for adventure and exploration.
