The children of Happy Time Child Care Centre learn to work as a team and to respect individual differences in knowledge and ability during the investigation of a worthwhile project based on children’s emergent interests or the school curriculum of each grade.
Reggio Emilia Approach
The emphasis on documentation, the use of a wide range of media to foster self-expression and an art studio specially designed in the classroom for artworks are other distinguishing aspects influenced by Reggio Emilia Approach.
Children’s self-initiated works for their classroom are influenced by Waldorf approach, which enables children to learn to do their part for their community and to learn to rely on others.
Montessori’s philosophy on children’s acquisition of knowledge through the active interaction with the environment is also incorporated into our program.
