White Peacock embraces the Reggio approach, which focuses on nurturing curiosity, creativity and collaboration.We understand that children are competent and active learners, even from infancy. Babies have the right to caring teachers and a positive early learning environment.
In our environment we will:
We provide plenty of safe space for babies to explore.
For the youngest infants, tummy time supports physical development while the baby examines a variety of novel objects provided by the teacher.
For those ready to crawl or walk, lots of child-directed activity allows the baby to discover his or her own interests.Teachers observe closely and document which activities appeal to individual infants.
Teachers introduce new skills when each baby is ready.
These might include holding a fork or scribbling on a piece of paper with crayons.
The Reggio approach also holds that teachers and infants learn together. Our teachers keep detailed records of the baby's progress and interests. Regular reports enable us to refine the curriculum, improve teaching methods and provide excellent care for all infants in our program.
Your Head Teacher:
Wendy grew up in Castro Valley. For the last 3 years she worked in Reaggio Emilia school (Ventana) as a preschool teacher. She has worked in the field of education and with young children for eight years, beginning shortly after she studied Early Childhood Education at Foothill College. Wendy believes strongly in mutual respect with children, holistic education, parent-teacher partnerships, the art of observation, and natural classroom environments. She is intrigued by the power of play, open communication, and a mindset of lifelong learning. Previously Wendy was an Assistant Director of a special needs non-profit organization in Mountain View, California, where she worked with special needs children and their families. She also volunteers her time helping other non-profit organizations develop and design special needs programs. This is close to her heart as she has a son that has Autism. Wendy is married with four children. All children go to school, the older one study in another State, so her own kids will not be in the childcare group.
