Reggio

THE PRINCIPLES
  • 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,
Finger Painting at CAST Preschool and Childcare Center
 I can discover… that colors mix to make new colors.
When I use the watering can,
Gardening at CAST Preschool and Childcare Center
 I can discover… how I can help flowers grow.
When I add sugar,
Cooking at CAST Preschool and Childcare Center
 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!
