Approach

The Children Garden Preschool is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach (add hyperlink to Reggio) to early childhood education. Learning Matters (hyperlink), Delhi is the mentor of the work and principles of the Children’s Garden Preschool.

The Reggio Emilia Approach® is an educational philosophy based on the image of a child and is about the whole child. Any school located outside of the Reggio Emilia region in Italy is referred to as Reggio Inspired as we are.

The Reggio Philosophy is based on the interaction of the relationships, environment and learning methods; each school, therefore, is unique.

 

The High Scope approach provides an umbrella to our emergent curriculum programme ensuring that key development experiences are integrated into student activities during the day.

 

Minds in Motion (hyperlink) a kinesthetic approach to learning forms an integral part of our programme.

THE HUNDRED LANGUAGES

OF CHILDREN

No way.

The hundred is there.

The child is made of one hundred.

The child has a hundred languages

a hundred hands

a hundred thoughts

a hundred ways of thinking

of playing, of speaking.

a hundred, always a hundred

ways of listening

of marveling, of loving

a hundred joys

for singing and understanding

a hundred worlds to discover

a hundred worlds to invent

a hundred worlds to dream.

The child has a hundred languages

(and a hundred hundred hundred more)

but they steal ninety-nine.

The school and the culture

separate the head from the body.

They tell the child to think without hands

to do without head

to listen and not to speak

to understand without joy

to love and to marvel

only at Easter and Christmas.

They tell the child

to discover the world already there

and of the hundred

they steal ninety-nine.

They tell the child that work and play

reality and fantasy

science and imagination

sky and earth

reason and dream

are things

that do not belong together.

And thus they tell the child

that the hundred is not there.

The child says

“No way- The hundred is there.”
