An emphasis of the Reggio Emilia philosophy is the documentation of each child's progress through photos, videos and the written word. The school's walls feature rotating displays of the children's unique artwork as well as their comments. At the end of the school year, each family receives a binder filled with their preschooler's artwork, photos and narrations.
Recent projects include:
*out-of-this-world robots for our "take-apart" project in which the children dissected retired household objects
*building and painting wooden airplanes
*observing our new caterpillars and predicting when they will turn into butterflies
*planting various vegetable seeds in our greenhouse
*paper mache puppets
*our annual self-portrait paintings that parents view on "Gallery Night" (at a real art gallery!)
