Join Us On Our Reggio Inspired Journey
Welcome to the Acorn School blog and thank you for visiting. This blog is intended to support those out there who are interested in learning more about the Reggio Emilia approach. Acorn School was established in 2006 as a private preschool for ages 18 months to 6 years of age. Since then we have become a resource for professionals and students who are looking to not only learn about the guiding principles, but also go deeper into their own practice and philosophy of teaching. We have been intrigued and continue to research in this educational approach. We hope you will find ways to rethink, reinterpret, and re-observe, the way children think, learn, and live when a community of professionals comes together to build a environment that engages each child and allows learning experiences and exploration to happen.
Acorn School offers workshops, conferences, mentorship programs, and tours to the public and has become somewhat of a model school for those who continue to or are starting to practice play based learning, inquiry based learning, project approach, sustainable education, and emergent curriculum. Our professional development is often customized workshops tailored to the needs of individuals and schools.
Those of us who work at Acorn are very passionate about the approach and wish to share our love for children and their ability to surprise, motivate, and inspire us. We encourage you to use this blog as a source of seeing how children are capable of learning, use it as your inspiration that can be shared with colleagues, children, families, and who ever else you wish to share. The Acorn School blog is not simply a place for ideas or a recipe for teaching, rather it should help you look deeper into your work with children and with other educators.
