For those of you who have kids in a Reggio school, what do you like most about it? How has it helped your child grow personally?  Do you feel like there is enough pre-literacy and pre-math stuff, and did your child transition well to public school K? 

 

Thanks in advance!

We have a wonderful Reggio school in Los Angeles. The teachers treat the student with respect and are really engaged in following the group's lead for how to plan the curriculum. The art is really wonderful, no cookie cutter anything. Very open to parent involvement.Plenty of fine motor skills development. Reggio is usually not academic so there isn't directed math/writing skills practiced (certainly no horrible worksheets) but I'd say the majority of almost 4s/4 y can write their name. Lots of work with skilss that build writing skills of course.

My kiddo is in a Reggio school, but is only 13 mos. now and just started there, so I don't have a lot of experience with their style just yet... I will say that I love it so far. They are very loving and laid back, and provide him with all kinds of new experiences every day, which is amazing for his development. He is already saying the names of each of his classmates and teachers, which blows me away.

 

What I love most about the school is the sense of community amongst the parents, especially because ours is part of a college and most of us are students or faculty... The combination brings us together in a way that I've never seen before with a college or a daycare alone.


Moo.

I love Reggio schools.  I think school should be about learning to find that spark within you and letting it shine.  Reggio kids really learn to think on their feet, work with their peers, and create something new in the world.  My munchkin goes to a Reggio school in MO and they have more hands-on, creative math and literacy than other schools in the area for this age.

We love reggio. I am homeschooling my twins and a lot of what we do is reggio inspired, some also Montessori inspired. You can see a lot of what we do on my blog and Pinterest.
