Our early learning program is based on the Reggio Emilia principles of respect, responsibility, and community. This approach recognizes the image of the individual child as a human with rights who has limitless potential for growth and uses Emergent Curriculum to co-create learning experiences that are derived from student interest and responses to provocations in the environment. Project-Based Learning and Mastery-Based Progression are used as frameworks within the Emergent Curriculum to work actively with hands, minds, and emotions in the context of the many expressive languages of children. Whittle is also inspired by key tenets of Reggio Emilia, including participation of families, collegial work of all personnel, the environment as the third teacher, group work, and the presence of an atelier.

The Teacher will demonstrate practices that reflect this approach by encouraging student independence, spontaneity, curiosity, and by always asking more questions than giving answers. Respect for our young learners is at the core of the Early Learning program.
