Our Reggio Emilia Inspired Curriculum

With over 20 years’ experience to draw upon, we know that young children learn best when they are at play, when they feel comfortable to ask questions and to
explore possible worlds through their imaginations.

Our unique curriculum draws on the principles of Reggio Emilia philosophy which places the child at the center of the learning experience.

Our learning spaces guide each child’s exploration of the world around them, celebrating each child’s ideas, whether that be in mathematics and literacy, music and movement or learning a new language... and our highly-experienced teachers work with our young students to undercover and develop their innate wonder and develop their love of learning.

The inquiry-based approach of the IB Primary Years Programme is introduced from 3 years old, igniting curiosity and providing the foundation for success in the Elementary School.

Your Child's Journey

No child is the same, and no child develops at the same pace. Our inquiry-based Reggio Emilia approach to learning extends beyond the teaching and into how we reflect on each child’s growth. This ensures that our teachers observe your child’s strengths and passions, to discover how these can be further stimulated and developed.

Fortnightly learning reflections are created for parents, which promote discussion between student, parent and teacher – who are the three key elements of your child’s learning journey.

Your child’s teacher is available to speak to you about your child’s progress and development on an informal basis when you need them. This open-door approach is supported by a formal reporting structure, which includes termly reports and parent-teacher conferences.

Our annual Exhibition of Learning provides the perfect opportunity for your child to guide you through all they have learnt across the year, and is a celebration of their joy of learning and inquiry.
