The Reggio Emilia Approach

We implement a child directed curriculum that uses the environment, community and family as learning partners in child development.

Our Approach

At the core of our philosophy we believe that children are capable, confident and have endless potential to construct and take charge of their own learning experiences. We as educators act as facilitators to their growth and potential

A Day in the Life

Children learn best when they have positive relationships with caregivers, parents, guardians and other adults in their lives. When children develop trusting relationships, they become confident and able to explore and learn freely.

In early childhood settings, children are given ample opportunities for emotional security as a result expand their learning experiences and expand skills in all areas of development.

At Nestlings, we curate an abundance of activities to keep your child engaged in learning, playing, socializing and growing. We recognize that as individuals all children are different and strive to incorporate any and all celebrations into our program.

There are endless learning possibilities from our community, families, educators, environment and more.

Parental Involvement

Nestlings Early Learning & Childcare knows that parents and guardians are their child’s first and most important teacher. As such we welcome and encourage family envolvement in our centre through social events and using our communication app, HiMama.

Parent involvement helps extend teaching outside the classroom, creates a more positive experience for children and helps children perform better when they are in school.

It is essential for parents to support the learning that happens in childcare settings at home as well. Parents who are in tune with what is happening in their child’s daily interactions are better able to establish a connection between what is learned at school and what takes place at home. This connection is a key component of a child’s development and supporting further learning.

Not only does family or parental involvement help extend teaching outside the classroom; it creates a more positive experience for children and helps children perform better when they are in school.
