We are inspired by the world-famous Reggio Emilia Approach from Italy that is focused on providing children with the very best childcare and education through the child’s own inquiry and discovery. We believe that powerful learning is purposeful, emotional, empowering, and representational. Our beliefs provide the pedagogical basis for making learning tangible. We combine this approach with the COR Advantage, Preschool Program Quality Assessment, Chinese National Standards and Dawnwood English Developmental Outcomes. This ensures our children receive a high quality of education while meeting the most widely accepted International standards and benchmarks.

– Approaches to Learning
– Social and Emotional Development
-Physical Development and Health
