1: Fundamental to the educational philosophy of "Reggio Emilia" is the perception of the children as being strong, intellectually rich and possessing great potential. Children have the right to be recognized as subjects of individual, legal, civil, and social rights; as both source and constructors of their own experience, and thus active participants in the organization of their identities, abilities, and autonomy, through relationships and interaction with their peers, with adults, with ideas, with objects, and with real and imaginary events of intercommunicating worlds. All this while establishing the fundamental premises for creating "better citizens of the world" and improving the quality of human interaction, also credits children, and each individual child, with an extraordinary wealth of inborn abilities and potential, strength and creativity. Starting from this point of reference, we recognize the right of children to realize and expand their potential, placing great value on their ability to socialize, receiving their affection and trust, and satisfying their needs and desires to learn. And this is so much truer when children are reassured by effective alliance between the adults in their lives, adults who are always ready to help, who place higher value on the search for constructive strategies of thoughts and action than on the direct transmission of knowledge and skills. These constructive strategies contribute the formation of creative intelligence, free thought, and the individuality that is sensitive and aware, through an ongoing process of differentiation and integration with other and other experiences. The fact that rights of children are recognized as the rights of all children is the sign of a more accomplished humanity. | Mission Statement:
2: Ms. Jessica Hartings "I have passion for the creative arts. My involvement in theatre arts taught me how to engage every student in a learning experiece. Many kinesthetic learners benefit from learning through movement, dance, and improvisation techniques, and I use these strategies daily when teaching. I also love to get my hands dirty with the children, and I will encourage them to literally "dig into" the subject matter they are interested in"

Their hammerhead makes them a hammerhead dragon. (Lisani walks out, she is the hammerhead) Enzo Dragon- Madison, would you like to go to my castle? You will have to climb on my back.
