Our Reggio-Inspired Approach
Our Mission: “TO INSPIRE AND NURTURE THE WHOLE CHILD — ONE CHILD, ONE FAMILY AND ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.”
Our vision for a Reggio-inspired approach to child care is very much about getting back to Newfoundland’s grass roots, family-centric approach to community.
Newfoundland and Labrador is known for its friendly people. Real and genuine, warm and welcoming, fun-loving and funny to the core, the people here are also known for their natural creativity, unique language, and knack for storytelling.
We see this in the parallel of family values and extended family and community involvement. As explained above, our approach is not about rushing and memorizing, but rather offering children control of their learning; emphasis on learning through experiences; the fostering of relationships between children and with staff; and the recognition that children have endless ways to express themselves.
LPW partners with parents in the care and nurture of our children. Our care is driven by respect for children as people and for the culture of childhood. Each day, we engage with our children, helping them to build knowledge and understanding through supervised encounters with teachers and peers and the exploration of their environment.
