Pacific Sage Preschool
A Reggio-Inspired Learning Environment
A place for friends. A place to grow. A place for wonder.
OUR PHILOSOPHY is Reggio-inspired, focused on learning through play, projects and open exploration. The importance of developing relationships is central – between the child and other children, the teacher, the child’s family and a rich and engaging environment. This reflects current early childhood education research, which shows that play and exploration are foundational during the preschool years. Self-knowledge and positive relationship-building skills are invaluable as children make their way through life.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” – Albert Einstein

Where is Pacific Sage Preschool? We are located on Montemalaga Drive just west of Silver Spur Elementary School at Pacific Unitarian Church.
What is a Reggio-inspired environment? 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.
