Reggio Emilia Approach

The curriculum at The Strong's Woodbury School is Reggio Emilia-inspired and is therefore responsive to the interests of the children in the class. This approach uses an “emergent” curriculum philosophy that encourages teachers and students to work together to plan the curriculum and create projects. Guided by teachers who facilitate their explorations, children delve deeply into topics that fascinate and stimulate learning. Small and large group activities involve art, music, cooperative games, movement, pre-reading, math, and other age-appropriate experiences. Parents have the opportunity to see how their children learn through student art, photographs of students at work and play, video recordings, and projects.
