Parkland Players prides itself in being one of the earliest Daycares to provide Reggio-inspired approaches in tri-cities, and is also unique in being a part of a school that offers the same approach to education, Meadowbrook Elementary School.
The Reggio Emilia Approach
Our program is based on the philosophy that all children are equal and unique individuals. We accommodate each child to his/her own rate of development.
We provide a warm, safe and nurturing environment to cultivate children’s optimal social and emotional growth as well as their physical and intellectual skills, in addition to promoting confidence and success, we also encourage children to learn to be creative independent.
The Reggio philosophy of education began in 1963 in preschools in the municipality of Reggio Emilia, northern Italy. The approach was then extended to infant-toddler centers in 1970. Through evolution and refinement over the past 4 decades, this international educational experience geared towards children aged three months to six years, has been shaped into a program which children can explore their environment through their own unique perspective, and use their choice of expression such as language, art, dance, or drama to communicate their feelings and ideas. This approach has yielded a higher level of creativity from children than the more directed educational approaches. Furthermore, educators have noted an increase in positive social behaviour, less aggression, fewer accidents and improved school readiness among children educated under the Reggio approach.
Under the Reggio approach, the teachers indirectly provoke ideas and solutions in children, and accompany the children on the exploration process rather than creating a distinct instructor/pupil relationship. The Environment is created and organized as such that is visually appealing to the children, and fosters curiosity and creativity. The ultimate goal is for the children to express their learning, knowledge, and experience freely and uniquely.
Although Reggio-inspired preschools are rare in North America, with North American parents and teachers gradually becoming more familiar with the Reggio Emilia approach, the program is inspiring preschools to modify current teaching and learning practices.
Parents Are Important
Parents are the most important people in a child’s life and for their development. We recognize your child’s dependence on you and other family members for support in all areas of development.
To achieve a high quality program, we offer:
- Well-trained, warm, nurturing and caring staff whose expertise and commitment are valued
- A rich and stimulating environment which can respond and adapt to the needs of individual children
- A predictable yet flexible routine that offers children the security of a stable framework for their day
- On-going communication between families and staff as part of an open and supportive relationship and commitment to work in partnership.
At Parkland Players we treat every child uniquely, providing them with individual attention on their personal development path.
Our reporting system continuously provides a transparent window to your child’s growth and development.
