We believe that children have a ‘hundred languages’ of expression and we seek to support all of those languages by offering resources, time, and space, supported by experienced educators.
“Once children are helped to perceive themselves as authors and inventors, once they are helped to discover the pleasures of inquiry, their motivation and interest explode.”
~Loris Malaguzzi, Reggio Emilia
