Professional Development

Teaching in the Reggio Approach is a multi-faceted process. Like peeling an onion with many layers, Reggio educators must hone their craft. This work includes the practice of careful observation, research and collaboration with peers. Laurelwood supports the work of its educators.

We provide on-site training as well as educational exchanges with other schools to further our knowledge of child development, early childhood education, and the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education. Weekly our teachers meet as a group with our Director of Education to discuss and reflect on the observations seen in the classrooms, art studio, and playscape and strategize on how to further the children’s learning.
