Reggio Inspired Program
Who are we?
We are part of the Fort McMurray Public School Division. Our program operates out of Walter and Gladys Hill Public School. Our Early Learning programs follow the Alberta curriculum and the division's frameworks with a Reggio inspired approach. This means your children will still meet all the same guidelines as students in our regular program, just that the way they experience learning will look very different.
Reggio Inspired Philosophy
Natural Resources that are unusual and interesting recycled materials that stimulate creativity, imagination and exploration
The importance of the teacher and the child learning together
The environment as “the third teacher”
Actively involved in our community
Documentation is the ongoing process of capturing the children’s learning
Our Reggio classrooms are calm and inviting spaces filled with wonderment
Creativity is sparked by provocations that are located at the learning centres throughout the classrooms
Our Reggio families play a very important role in our program (Reggio Family Nights)
Open ended play-based activities
