- Each child is viewed as strong, capable and having the capacity to learn
- The role of the teacher is to be a resource and support for the child
- The environment is seen as a third teacher and is set up in purposeful ways to promote learning
- The children’s work is documented, displayed and compiled in a portfolio showing growth and learning over time
When I play different instruments,
I can discover… lots of new and wonderful sounds.
When I finger paint,
I can discover… that colors mix to make new colors.
When I use the watering can,
I can discover… how I can help flowers grow.
When I add sugar,
I can discover… how to bake something sweet to eat.
OUR CAST REGGIO PROJECT
Hatching Monarch Butterflies
As a school, CAST embarked on this Reggio journey! Each of our classrooms received monarch larvae – so tiny we could hardly see them. Just as in the story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, our tiny caterpillars ate and ate and ATE… and turned into beautiful BUTTERFLIES!
