At Forest Grove, our Reggio Emilia-inspired program is founded on the recognition and respect of each and every child as a unique and capable individual. Through an interest-based and child-directed curriculum, we encourage their inquisitive nature and curiosity. As educators, we learn along with them, supporting and facilitating their exploration academically, creatively and socially.
Collaboration is the cornerstone of this philosophy. Communication between children, educators, and parents is essential in creating a space and a program that encourages a lifelong love of learning.
We believe that children should look forward to going to nursery school each week – a place where they feel safe, happy, involved and able to thrive. At Pearson, families and teachers are continuously collaborating to create an amazing learning environment that achieves this goal. Our curriculum is child-led through exploration and inquiry to allow both child-initiated and adult-supported leaning opportunities. All programs included a healthy snack and outdoor playtime.
Two, three or five mornings a week, this program includes circle-time activities, as well as songs, stories, creative and free play, while building self help and social skills.
