Reddam House schools pride themselves on applying the unique Reggio Emilia educational approach to early learning education. This teaching philosophy first developed in post-war Italy focuses on recognising and celebrating each individual young child’s innate abilities and gifts.
Children are regarded as competent and capable in their own right and the philosophy respects childhood as a time to explore, create and be joyful. This philosophy along with other recognised teaching methods form a rich and dynamic foundation for early learning.
We focus on recognising and celebrating each individual child’s innate abilities and gifts.
Our philosophy respects childhood as a time to explore.
Teachers are skilled observers who determine individual needs.
The layout of the physical space at Reddam House Durbanville has been adapted to encourage choices, problem solving and exploration. Teachers are skilled observers who determine individual needs and build on existing gifts and talents. The approaches are balanced and giving, without undue academic pressure. The methodology encourages a feeling of belonging and instills innate confidence in children. Their learning environment is made to feel safe, welcoming and authentic.
Documentation of work in progress is made visible on large panels throughout the classroom, thereby keeping the memory of the work vivid and alive.
