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.
