Waterford Lakes Daycare Programs

Put simply, the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education is based on three main principles: Respect, responsibility, and community. It encourages exploration and discovery as a way for children to develop their own unique personalities through a self-guided curriculum that is unique for each child.

The village of Reggio Emilia in Italy was the site of early childhood education that developed in the second half of the 20th Century. Creator Loris Malaguzzi and others discovered that when very young children used “symbolic languages” such as sculpting, playacting, and other imaginative means of self-expression, they were better able to express their thoughts and ideas.

Highly Effective Learning

The program has been perfected and now is being adopted by innovative daycare centers throughout the US, including The Amazing Explorers Academy. Children enrolled in the Waterford Lakes daycare program benefit from huge advancements in early childhood development, learning skills and concepts that can help them excel throughout their education as well as into their adult lives. By exploring, discovering, and being encouraged to express their own creative thoughts, even the youngest children can begin to nurture intelligence, successful social acclimation, and positive ways of thinking that can be sustained for a lifetime.
