Reggio Emilia’s approach to early childhood education refers to the environment as the “third teacher”. Our learning environments have been designed to create a sense of wonder and ensure spaces are responsive to children’s interests and abilities. Play based learning experiences are arranged to excite and engage children and reflect family and community involvement.
The outdoor environment is equally as important and provides opportunities for children to explore, discover and connect with nature. Our outdoor learning space supports an appreciation of the natural environment and our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
Flexible routines and transitions help educators provide the consistency children need to feel safe and secure in their environment. The reassurance and stability of routines allow children to take risks and actively engage in their learning environments.
