A Reggio-inspired school where the children and teachers work together on an emergent curriculum based upon the childrenâs interest. Joanne Whitney- the curriculum director and 3-5-year-old teacher explains, âwe believe that our children are strong and capable learners, who have a deep curiosity for the world around them and what they want to learn about. As educators we would do them a huge disservice and squash their natural desire to learn by presenting them with themes and lesson plans that may coincide with what society think they should be learning about or the month of the year but are of no real interest to them. Instead we carefully observe what our students are interested in and then plan projects and learning activities around that interest to encourage optimum learning and interestâ
