At The Village Preschool we are a Reggio Emilia style education inspired preschool program. We build partnerships with our parents and provide our families with a program that is designed to be flexible enough to meet each family’s unique needs, while delivering a high quality preschool curriculum. The Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children puts the natural development of children as well as the close relationships that they share with their environment at the center of its philosophy. We believe that children must have some control over the direction of their learning, that children must be able to learn through experiences of sensory, moving, listening, seeing, and hearing. As well as giving children endless ways and opportunities to express themselves through art, music, movement and with their own words. Our teachers listen, ask questions and plan our daily activities and lessons based on the classes interests.
We are also a QRIS 3 Star ranked Preschool.
What is QRIS?
Oregon's Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) is a program that raises the quality and consistency of child care and early learning programs across the state. The Quality Rating System recognizes, rewards and builds on what early learning and development programs are already doing well. It helps ensure children in QRIS programs are ready for kindergarten by connecting programs and providers with free tools, financial incentives and professional advice that they can put into practice with confidence.
