What does the Reggio-inspired environment look like in the Early Years?
Our learning spaces are beautiful. In the Reggio Emilia tradition the environment is clean, open, and inviting. The environment is filled with stunning materials, light tables, books, and furniture. Each classroom also has a mini-atelier (art studio). The Early Years environment has been specifically designed to meet the development needs of children aged 2 to 4 years and to stimulate rapid learning and brain growth.
Children in our Early Years program have access to the amazing facilities of our entire school,including our piazza (an open public space used for community gatherings), dramatic play centre, science lab, yoga and meditation room, kitchen, and performing arts spaces.
Our Early Years students also have their very own learning spaces that have been crafted specifically for smaller people. These include the Early Years indoor gym, art materials and resources for little hands, separate Early Years dining room, and the Early Years playground.
Tuition includes organic-based snacks and meals from Organic Kids in our very popular half-day and full-day programs.
Our programs are in full compliance with the Ontario Child Care and Early Years’ Act and York Region Public Health provisions. We are inspected regularly.
