- Designed for the 21stcentury learner

EYFS – The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.
The Reggio Emilia philosophy is based upon the following set of principles:
- Children must have some control over the direction of their learning
- Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing
- Parent involvement is an integral part of this approach
Montessori Approach: Emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.
Lev Vygotsky – His approach talks about cognitive development and how social interactions help develop our cognitive skills.
