We spent the last decade working closely with elementary school-aged children at our afterschool center, Bay Area Learning Academy / BALA, where we have personally witnessed, first-hand, how children learn best. We now wish to expand the benefits of the Reggio Emilia approach to children’s education and are extremely confident we can have an equally positive influence on a child’s growth by interacting with them at early stages of development. Taking what we have learned through our afterschool center, we developed a Reggio inspired program that focuses on stimulating natural curiosity and creativity while also developing an affinity for lifelong learning. Modeling after our afterschool center, we will provide and create an exceptional learning environment where your child can explore, learn, develop, and most importantly, feel a sense of belonging. Our teachers work alongside each child to help them to research, create, discover, and play while providing a diverse range of learning experiences tailored to individual stages of development and personal interests.
