Philosophy

Forest Grove Preschool Philosophy"Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water." Loris Malaguzzi

"Children are protagonists with the right to collaborate and communicate with others. Their rights are manifested in curiosity, wonderment, exploration, discovery, social construction, and representations of their knowledge within their contexts. Children are not passive receptors of teacher-generated knowledge but are able to construct knowledge based on their experiences and interactions with others." The Institute for Early Childhood Education and Research

At Forest Grove, our Reggio Emilia-inspired program is founded on the recognition and respect of each and every child as a unique and capable individual. Through an interest-based and child-directed curriculum, we encourage their inquisitive nature and curiosity. As educators, we learn along with them, supporting and facilitating their exploration academically, creatively and socially.

Collaboration is the cornerstone of this philosophy. Communication between children, educators and parents is essential in creating a space and a program that encourages a lifelong love of learning.
