Reggio approach

Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself

reggio approach 1
At l’écoline, we believe that each child has multiple interests, multiple intelligences and multiple languages that only require to develop, to enrich themselves thanks to a benevolent environment rich enough to give birth to an infinite number of projects. These projects can be one-off or can continue for several months as long as they nurture children with discoveries and learning. These projects are multidisciplinary and thus cover all areas of learning.
We consider that children do not become citizens, they are born citizens. They are an integral part of the community and society. A child’s joy, ability to play and wonder are highly valued and recognized as a common good.

Our role is to provide the child with resources and a quality environment, to listen, observe, document the learning process and learn with them every day.

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach

We consider children to be naturally competent, resourceful, true actors of their learning and having rights. Able to think and make sense of their relationship to the world around them, children are not empty vessels to be filled with knowledge. We encourage their independence, responsibility and cooperation in the projects and activities we carry out with them.

L’écoline is a place of research and curiosity. It is a universe full of life where time is given and where relationships of trust are forged.

Marion Julia, Managing Director

We accompany children in their search for meaning and in their personal way of learning and understanding the world.
We value their creative thinking and encourage them to formulate hypotheses and make connections to interpret their environment. We bring them an attentive listening, without preconceived ideas.
