At Academia Cotopaxi's IMAGINE Early Childhood Learning Center, we believe in the power of IMAGINATION. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia teaching pedagogy, our program is focused upon building a welcoming, inclusive environment that encourages all children to explore, investigate, grow and celebrate their uniqueness within our world.
Developed in Northern Italy, the Reggio Emilia method builds upon the belief that children's curiosity and creativity should guide their learning. IMAGINE students learn through extended, collaborative projects that cultivate future connections in language, mathematics, science, and the arts. These projects, in turn, help build an experiential, collaborative learning environment, where every member is welcome and encouraged to grow.
