CURRICULUM

REGGIO EMILIA INSPIRED

OUR EDUCATIONAL APPROACH


Reddam House schools pride themselves on applying the unique Reggio Emilia educational approach to pre-school education. A teaching philosophy first developed in post-war Italy, it focuses on recognising and celebrating each individual pre-school child’s innate abilities and gifts. Children are regarded as competent and capable in their own right and the philosophy respects childhood as a time to explore, create and be joyful.

At Reddam House Somerset we offer an enriched, stimulating morning at school that includes a balance of both class teaching and specialist subject teaching (including Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Physical Education, Computers) The children are actively involved in meaningful provocations that incorporate all areas of learning and development, including numeracy and literacy.


We focus on recognising and celebrating each individual child’s innate abilities and gifts.


Our philosophy respects childhood as a time to explore.


Teachers
are skilled observers who determine individual needs.


The layout of the physical space at Reddam House Somerset has been designed to encourage choices, problem solving and exploration. Teachers are skilled observers who determine individual needs and build on existing gifts and talents. The approach is balanced and giving, without undue academic pressure. The methodology encourages a feeling of belonging and instils innate confidence in children. Their learning environment is made to feel safe, welcoming and authentic.

Documentation of work in progress is made visible on large panels throughout the classroom, thereby keeping the memory of the work vivid and alive.
