When you walk through the front door at this unique and innovative preschool you never know quite what to expect! You may find The Evergreens the oldest students (3-5 years old) engrossed in writing their own books about the caterpillar they found in their Outdoor classroom, totally focused on an organic cooking project or up to their elbows in paint as they work together to create their representation of Van Gogh's starry night as part of their project learning and the younger students- The Sprouts and Seedlings happily playing and exploring to their hearts content in tubs of water on the sensory deck as part of their project on water.
That s because this is a Reggio-inspired school where the children and teachers work together on an emergent curriculum based upon the children s interest. Joanne Whitney- the curriculum director and 3-5-year-old teacher explains, we believe that our children are strong and capable learners, who have a deep curiosity for the world around them and what they want to learn about. As educators we would do them a huge disservice and squash their natural desire to learn by presenting them with themes and lesson plans that may coincide with what society think they should be learning about or the month of the year but are of no real interest to them. Instead we carefully observe what our students are interested in and then plan projects and learning activities around that interest to encourage optimum learning and interest
