Teacher working with student

Curriculum

We hold play-based learning at the heart of our daily rhythms. We respect and acknowledge that when children are playing, they are learning.

We also know that children express themselves and their intelligence in many different “languages”; music, movement, writing, art, and sports to name a few, so we provide ample opportunity for them to experience, and express, them all.

Expressive Beginnings Child Care is inspired by many facets of the world renowned Reggio Emilia approach, an emergent learning style of international acclaim. In other words, learning topics are child directed and require teachers to exercise flexibility and creativity to follow the interests of their students rather than rigid lesson plans. We find that when children are exploring a topic that they are interested in, their engagement and learning increases dramatically. And no matter the topic or activity, the teachers still accomplish age-appropriate objectives in language, literacy, mathematics, science and social studies.
