Miss Chloe Gill is our Early Years Teacher. Miss Gill has trained as a Reggio Emilia teacher. The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education values the child as' strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge where every child has a deep curiosity and potential'.
The Reggio Emilia approach, similar to the Montessori approach has at its core a belief that children are born curious and competent and should be respected and celebrated; that they should be “co-constructors” within their own learning. Our Early Years environment and our approach to educating our youngest pupils are based on these principles. In The Little Owls class we follow the children’s interests which guide their learning. It is imperative to fuel children’s curiosity and appetite for learning with themes and projects that are based on their own interests making for an incredibly rich, diverse and relevant environment; resulting in authentic and meaningful engagement and participation and thus a love for learning.
