"Our mission is to support and develop children's potential through a child-centered, collaborative teaching and learning environment inspired by the philosophy and practice of the Reggio Schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The art studio and the art teacher are essential elements of a Reggio-inspired school. The visual arts provide a powerful and manageable tool for children to use in expressing their ideas. The art studio is a place for learning techniques in the use of a variety of tools and materials and creating products that reflect children's thinking and learning.
SWS’s mission is to support and develop children’s potential through a uniquely child-centered, collaborative teaching and learning environment. We believe that children are:
• Competent, intelligent, curious and innately creative,
• Ready to learn within a social context and active participants in the formation of their ideas and understanding of the world, and
• Equal partners with their parents and teachers in the learning process."
