Students in Nursery 1 at EHM follow an inquiry-based program, based on the educational approach of Reggio Children in Reggio Emilia. The educational emphasis is on the natural development of a child, and the close relationships the child holds with the environment. Children have rights and are full of potential, and as such take an active role as a creator of knowledge. Most of the learning taking place is project-based, and teachers are active co-learners in this process.
The Reggio Emilia philosophy naturally merges into the next part of our educational program, continuing building on a holistic and inquiry-based approach to learning. Nursery 1 also embodies aspects of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) with their approaches to learning, planning, and designing developmentally appropriate activities to support student success.
