"It is important to understand that we are not trying to “copy” the Reggio Emilia Approach in our work with young children. Instead, our study of this unique Approach, as well as other educational approaches, has assisted us in developing our own philosophy for working with young children.
It is also important to understand that a school's philosophy of education is different than a school's curriculum. The development of a philosophy has assisted our school in developing a curriculum. To clarify, our philosophy helps us to understand why we make the choices we make in our work with young children while our curriculum assists us in understanding how to make decisions about the work we do with young children.
