“Children desire to acquire knowledge, have much capacity for curiosity and amazement, and yearn to create relationships with others and communicate.” -Loris Malaguzzi, Reggio Emilia founder
Little School is about collaboration, community, and creativity for children ages six weeks through three years old. Inspired by Reggio Emilia, our project-based curriculum builds on children’s individual interests and skills.
Infants and Yearlings
Little School offers a nurturing environment where children explore at their own pace and developmental level, using open-ended materials. As they grow, learn and build relationships with staff and the children around them, they develop a sense of competence and trust in the world.
Young Toddlers (starting around 18 months)
Young Toddlers at Little School develop an appreciation for their uniqueness along with a sense of respect for others and themselves. They engage in language, motor, cognitive, social, and emotional development through hands-on exploration and group interactions.
Older Toddlers and Young Threes: 24 months and up
Our Older Toddlers and Young Threes follow their natural curiosity, develop ideas, and learn about their world. We take cues from their individual interests, learning styles, and abilities, with a curriculum focused on the process and foundation of learning, not the resulting product.
