Exploring Learning at Kodomo Edu.
When people talk about “Reggio approach”,
sometimes art is the main focus.
However, in order to deepen the children’s learning,
it is necessary to repeat spiral learning with their peers,
as explained above. This idea comes from the concept
of “Constructivism”, and it is frequently used
in preschool that has high-quality education system
in the U.S. and Europe.
What Children Can Acquire through our program
Children will spend a day with professional Reggio approach teachers. Experiencing various kinds of materials will stimulate the children’s curiosity, which will lead to better self-expression. Many activities include group work with their peers, and the long duration of the work time together will allow them to acquire communication and teamwork skills. We also believe it is important that they will go out to the park to experience and observe nature while also enjoying it.
One of the key fundamentals to the Reggio approach is “to express,” and based on this we created our own new program. The slogan is “Express Yourself!” Through the language of English and Artistic expression, children will express themselves comfortably. By providing an environment where children can express themselves, we will encourage and support children to develop their own voice.
Just like After School, the slogan “Express yourself” is used to enrich learning. Through various fieldworks, the kids are given the opportunity for independent thinking. We will encourage and support children to develop their own voice.
For mothers of children between 0-2 years old, we will lecture various approaches that suit each child’s developmental stage, which are practicable at home. Using the Reggio Approach, Kodomo Edu and early childcare professionals created this original program.
