Dolphin Tales Preschool

Reggio Emilia-Reggio Inspired

The Reggio Emilia approach to early learning was developed by Loris Malaguzzi and the citizens of Reggio Emilia Italy. This philosophy embraces four main ideas.:

1.   Children are active participants in learning

2.   Environment plays a significant role in early learning

3.   Parents, teachers and children are collaborators in the process of learning

4. Documentation is learning made visible

Loris Malaguzzi believed that children are endowed with ‘a hundred languages’, or infinite ways and means to express themselves. In a Reggio classroom children are seen as curious, competent and connected and that they learn best by doing. At Dolphin Tales Preschool teachers provide varied and interesting classroom experiences, which provoke children to explore and discover. The flexible program is based on children’s interests, strengths, and needs. Projects, or explorations, may last only a few days , or may extend over a period of months; as long as the children’s interest is sustained. Documentation of the children’s explorations, in the form of photographs and written notes, can be found on the walls of the classroom, and are valuable tools to understanding and revisiting the learning process.
