The Reggio Emilia approach is a pedagogical learning system that gives children more control over the direction of their learning. Rather than forcing children to study by rote memorization, this European style of learning encourages children to think for themselves through touching, moving, listening and observing. Not only does this new way of learning help children learn to express themselves more clearly and intelligently, but it also promotes socialization with other children as well as an exploration of the world around them.
Unlike other traditional education programs, in the learning programs utilized at The Amazing Explorers Academy children are put at the center of their own world. They are viewed as social beings who learn to easily and confidently interact with other children, family members, teachers, and other people in the community.
A New Way of Learning
The program has achieved remarkable success both in Europe and the US. Winter Springs preschool participants learn to value respect, responsibility, and community through self-driven exploration and discovery. It’s a highly innovative and unique way of learning that is both highly effective and a lot of fun.
Children learn to express their own ideas through symbolic languages such as art, science, and physical play. And it’s now available for parents of preschool-aged children in Winter Springs. To learn more, call or visit The Amazing Explorers Academy.
