Learning for a Lifetime
Reggio Influenced Program

 WHAT IS THE REGGIO PROGRAM?

  • The Reggio Program is a program of choice offered by School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) at the Kindergarten to Grade 5 level for the 2018/2019 school year at Meadowbrook Elementary.
  • The Reggio vision is of an 'education based on relationships'. Our educational philosophy at Meadowbrook focuses on the individual child in relationship with the family, other children, staff, the school environment and society. These relationships are interconnected and reciprocal.
  • It is an approach to education that encourages children and their teachers to explore, question, discover and acquire skills of critical thinking and collaboration in beautiful, stimulating environments.
  • Children express interests and ideas, research for further information, reflect on the experience and form conclusions. Through this process, children develop the confidence and independence with encouragement from parents, teachers and community members.
  • The Reggio approach is not a formal approach like Montessori with defined methods, teacher certification standards and accreditation processes.
