Reggio Emilia

The Reggio Emilia teaching approach is an innovative and child-centered educational philosophy that emphasizes the unique capabilities, interests, and curiosities of each child. This approach fosters a learning environment where children are active participants in their own education. By valuing the child’s voice and encouraging exploration, Reggio Emilia aims to cultivate a lifelong love of learning and critical thinking skills.

Light Studio: A Reggio Emilia-inspired classroom at D-PREP

The future is faster than we think, and with this speed comes the need for people to adapt quickly. Children’s development should not be limited to academics and sports in this new age. It should include a variety of specialized skills that will challenge their social, problem-solving skills, and more.

Within the Light Room, children have the freedom to personalize their experience. They can control, experiment, and adjust everything according to their preferences, fostering a sense of autonomy and ownership. Our dedicated teachers guide students to explore and experiment freely, unlocking their creativity and potential based on individual interests.
In this nurturing environment, early years students can discover and engage in new experiences under the guidance of our educators. Teachers take on a supportive role, recording children’s actions to gain a deeper understanding of each child’s unique strengths and areas for growth. This collaborative approach ensures a rich and personalized learning journey for every child in the Light Room.

Expectations

At D-PREP International School, we encourage children to actively engage in their education, driven by their natural curiosity. Through collaborative projects and exploration, students take the lead in shaping their learning experience, promoting a genuine passion for discovery and a love for learning.
Creativity is a cornerstone expectation. We provide diverse materials, textures, and tools to empower students to express themselves freely. Decision-making is another key aspect. We encourage independence by allowing students to choose their learning environment. This fosters not only autonomy and confidence but also sharp decision-making skills that will serve them well in future challenges.
The outcomes of the Reggio Emilia approach extend beyond traditional academics. Students develop vital life skills, including effective communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Our emphasis on collaboration prepares them for success in various social and professional contexts, emphasizing the importance of teamwork and cooperation. The documentation and reflection practices encourage self-awareness, instilling a sense of pride and a reflective mindset. Overall, our goal is to equip students with a holistic skill set, nurturing creativity, confidence, and a lifelong love for learning that will prove invaluable in their future endeavors.
