Our progressive philosophy is constructionist, Reggio-inspired, and focused on learning through play. The importance of developing relationships is central. Pacific Sage supports collaboration between the child and other children, the teacher, the child’s family and a rich and engaging environment. Our philosophy reflects current early childhood education research, which shows that play and self directed exploration create a critical foundation during the preschool years. Self-knowledge and positive relationship-building skills are invaluable as children grow and make their way through life.
What is Reggio-inspired?
- A Reggio-inspired environment reflects current early learning methods and includes play-based learning, open movement of children through the learning space and the use of natural materials. The environment supports the educational image of the child as possessing great potential and rights, who learns and grows in relationship to others. See resources below to learn more about play-based learning and its positive impact in the learning outcomes of children.
