Central to the Reggio Emilia Approach are the arts and the Atelier, where children use their hands and imagination to explore materials and create. The Atelier is a place for children to express themselves and where the emphasis is always placed on the process and never on the final product: we want children to embed that everyone can create something beautiful.
Young children learn by using thought, their senses and intuition; they build strong relationships with familiar adults and peers; they become acquainted with the elements of their milieu. Children have numerous ways to express themselves and should also get numerous opportunities to lead learning themselves and co-construct learning engagements.
Our School’s programme, inspired by the key principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), is also enriched with essential Greek cultural elements such as the theatre, myths and fables, etc. Furthermore, in a country with such a privileged natural environment, we provide multiple opportunities for children to explore nature, play outdoors, and use natural materials.
