Reggio Preschool

Vancouver Hebrew Academy is thrilled to be starting the first Orthodox Reggio Preschool in Western Canada. This fully redesigned preschool program is for children ages 3 and 4 and runs from 8:30-12:30 Monday through Friday.

The Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children is centered around several fundamental values about how young children learn.

These core values include:

  1. viewing the child as an active participant in their own learning
  2. recognizing the importance of the child’s environment
  3. viewing teachers, parents and children as collaborators in the process of learning
  4. learning needs to be visible

This model lends itself well to our school beliefs and Torah philosophy that children are unique individuals with their own personality, skills, interest and experiences and that to promote life long learning we need to provide a multitude of learning opportunities for children.
