Reggio Classrooms Stimulate Critical Thinking

Human-Centered Development

We value the evolution of human nature in all its varied aspects. Ventana’s community of children, parents, and teachers are considered co-investigators in a life-long process of learning. Both curriculum and pedagogy focus on social-emotional development, age-appropriate and differentiated learning, intrinsic motivation, concentrated reflection and considered thought, and deep sensitivity to cultural and spiritual diversity.

A Reggio Classroom

Reggio classrooms are filled with provocations and invitations that engage our learners in deep investigations. This page provides a photographic sampling of questions and natural displays that entice critical thinking and that form the basis of our "emergent" preschool and integrated-exploratory elementary school programs.
