Rivermont Collegiate’s Reggio Emilia Inspired Preschool

Our wonder-based classroom is inspired by the child-led, inquiry-based learning of the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Our students are capable and competent learners ready to engage the world. The preschool classroom meets the demands of these inquiring minds by providing an environment rich in investigations and challenges that provide them opportunities to examine and discover their learning by incorporating empathy, respect, and community through collaboration. Our classroom embraces learning through optimistic techniques that inspire curiosity, exploration, and discovery. The data collected from these experiences guide us in expanding their academic potentials and social-emotional growth. Our students are valued for their voice in our community. They are the heroes of their stories within our classroom. Our classroom community reflects together as student, teacher, and parent supporting the learning dynamic as a united front. The teacher works as the mentor, parent as the role model, and student as the honored learner on a journey of limitless exploration of the world, experiences, and its wonders.
