Tell me all about it...

I know someone out there can help me with this...

We are thinking of placing Anna in a preschool program based on the Reggio Emilia educational approach. I can do the research to find out what the details are (it emphasize the arts and communication and will feature music, movement, work with clay and an introduction to the Spanish language) but I'm looking for more of a personal account.

Anna as a 3 year old would go two half days a week to start in the Fall and then possibly 3 half days the next Spring. They also have a 5 day half day program for 4 year olds that she could move into next year.

So - my questions for you - What kind of temperment your child has and how they did in the school. What kind of interests your child had before they went into the program? Why did you choose this approach? What did you like? What didn't you?

Aviva went to a theraputic preschool from ages 2 to 3 and had a hard time adjusting but when there loved it.

And from ages 3 to 5 went to prek and loved it, she is a very social child. I could not give Aviva what she needed at home.

It sounds like a great program for Anna.
