Reggio Emilia

“The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.”  – Loris Malaguzzi 

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, Namao Preschool offers an early childhood education program that is guided by children’s natural curiosity and creativity. 

Children are offered an environment where they have influence with what they learn.  Sensory and dramatic play are strongly encouraged.  In addition, we offer a strong community based program where children can express their curiosity and learn about the environment around them.

We believe that providing children with hands on experience in the early years of their lives will give them the opportunity to grow emotionally and socially in a positive environment in preparation for Kindergarten and years beyond.

True to the Reggio Emilia philosophy, Namao Preschool welcomes parent/family involvement.  Rostering duties and other contributions to the community are scheduled throughout the year (end of year BBQ, Namao Fun Day, collecting donations for a food bank, etc.).
