The Reggio Emilia Approach
The philosophy of education and pedagogy of Christina Kent Early Childhood Center are inspired by the world-renowned schools for young children in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We are inspired by the following principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach:
- The image of the child as strong and competent.
- Collaboration between parents, teachers, and children.
- The environment as the third teacher. The power of documentation to make the learning process visible.
- In-depth studies based on children’s interests.
- Collaborative planning and professional development.
