The Reggio Emilia Approach:
Our Early Years program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education.

The Reggio Emilia Approach was developed after WWII by Loris Malaguzzi and the parents in Reggio Emilia, Italy. It is an educational philosophy based on an image of children as strong, capable, competent, and possessed of great potentials for learning and development.

EIS Early Years: The Reggio Emilia Program

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge.
The value of quality, developmentally appropriate early childhood education cannot be overstated. Children who receive high-quality education in their early years reap benefits in their cognitive and social development, and in the development of their language skills and thinking skills in both the short-term and long term.
