We practice the Reggio Emilia approach to teaching at SHED because of how this philosophy values the child.
Reggio Emilia’s inspired understanding that a child learns in 100 languages offers us as an organization and as educators a set of focused and agreed upon guidelines that help us set up an environment in which all children can thrive during such a crucial time in their development.
We are always researching —
Investigating new ways to let your child explore, learn, and grow
- Capturing your child’s experience through documentation
- Using that insight to enhance our understanding of your child
- Making each next experience more purposeful and meaningful
- We learn alongside your child in a constant evolution.
