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.

Policies

Food policy and meal program

Children eat their snack and lunch in their classrooms. We try to foster a familial atmosphere during meal times and expect the children to be independent. We have facilities for refrigerating and heating meals sent from home if you prefer for your child to eat a hot lunch. Water is available at all times, however please refrain from sending disposable plastic and glass water bottles to be refilled at school.

It is important that your child has breakfast or a morning snack early in the morning in order to start his or her day full of energy. Please send a healthy mid-morning snack and a healthy lunch with your child. Your child is permitted one treat per day. Please ensure that this treat is an appropriate serving size for a child. If you send “junk food” or treats of inappropriate serving size with your child, they will be taken away and returned home with a note reminding you of our healthy food policy. To avoid your child’s distress, please adhere to the policy.
MEAL PROGRAM
Eastwood has partnered with Eaternity’s Kitchen Network Catering to offer professionally catered, quality meal plans for students. Kitchen Network Catering prepares meals wi th fresh, high-quality ingredients in its central kitchen, certified for food safety by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 22000).

Meals are delivered fresh to our campus each day. Eastwood offers affordably priced, flexible meal plan packages to suit your family’s needs throughout the academic year. Half or full package meal plans can be purchased monthly, yearly, or for any duration in between.

Half package meal plans are comprised of either breakfast or lunch each day. Breakfast packages cost $50 per month. Lunch packages cost $100 per month.

Full package meal plans include both breakfast and lunch each day. For students in the Early Years and Elementary, full package meal plans cost $140 per month.

Our Early Year busses and transportation Policies | EIS

Bus services

EIS’s fleet of minibuses provides transportation services for students to and from campus for students within approximately 15 kilometers of the school.

We operate minibuses in order to help ensure that your child does not spend extended periods in traffic. The typical travel time for our buses between the EIS campus and Beirut is 30 to 45 minutes. Minibuses seat 10 to 12 students, so your child will not be crowded or uncomfortable at the beginning or end of their school day

We take your child’s safety on the roads seriously. All of our buses are inspected and maintained in accordance with our stringent safety criteria to ensure that your children travel safely to and from school. Whenever possible, we place a bus monitor on buses to supervise students. We further ensure safety by using an internal system to track a variety of data about our buses and drivers, such as overall driving habits, speed, braking, location, and arrival and departure times. Our internal system also notifies us if there are safety concerns with any of the buses in our fleet so that we can act swiftly to address them.
We understand that as parents, you have busy schedules and waiting for your child’s bus to arrive in the morning and afternoon can be an added task to an already demanding schedule. To relieve some of that stress, preserve precious time, and provide greater peace of mind, EIS provides parents with access to bus data in real time through the NavLeb app, available for free in the App Store and Google Play store. Upon your child’s registration for bus services, EIS will provide you with a username and password for the NavLeb portal. Upon logging in, you will be able to access a variety of information about your child’s bus, including the time of its departure from or arrival to campus and its current location on the roads. The NavLeb app will also send push notifications to your mobile device to inform you of when your child’s bus has left campus or arrived at your home.

Nurse and Nurse’s Office
The campus has a nurse’s office staffed by a full-time registered nurse every day. The nurse’s office is equipped with a medical stretcher trolley and private bathroom to ensure student privacy and comfort concerning medical issues. The nurse’s office maintains meticulous records of student medical needs and visits to the nurse’s office on a private, internal computer system, ensuring that your child’s medical information remains secure.

Cleaning and Pest Control
Eastwood maintains a full-time custodial staff. The custodial staff cleans the classrooms and outdoor areas of the campus each morning prior to the arrival of students and faculty and at the end of each school day after students and faculty depart. The custodial staff is also present throughout the day to maintain the cleanliness of the bathrooms and hallways and attend to custodial needs as they arise
Safety and Security
A campus-wide alarm system is installed for use in the event of a fire or other situation requiring the emergency evacuation of the building and grounds. Eastwood conducts regular maintenance of the system and tests the system twice annually during emergency evacuation drills. Fire extinguishers are located in easily accessible areas and are regularly replaced. The Eastwood campus is gated and secure, with our entrance overseen by a security caretaker and a closed circuit security camera system. Classrooms and common areas are also equipped with cameras for student safety and security.
