A core value in the Reggio Emilia approach is the importance of parents involvement. Parents are a vital component to the Reggio philosophy and are viewed as partners, collaborators, and advocates for their children. While it’s not uncommon to see parents here at Little Wonders, we always encourage and support parent involvement during the exploring process because the Reggio philosophy does not end when the child leaves our classroom.
In the photos below, one of the parents in the PreSchool class cam to help the children sprout sees. The seeds have been “trying to grow” according to the chlidren for some time now, but having a parent come and spend time with the children and share her expertise was such a wonderful experience for the school.
We highly value the exchange of ideas and continued communication between the parents and teachers. Our school places an emphasis on community development, and interaction and communication between the teachers, parents, children, and the community. Little Wonders is a community of learners and we always aim to make the rooms welcoming for parents! Our goal is to make learning transparent for parents, teachers, children, and the community.
