Infusion Christian Preschool is a community of children, teachers and parents committed to supporting each other by providing a Christ-centered learning environment designed to develop the mental, physical, spiritual and relational skills of each child in a warm and loving atmosphere. We also strive to develop each child’s creative side with a strong focus on nature in a collaborative environment where we learn from each other in a place where each individual is celebrated, respected and valued.
Infusion Christian Pre-school is a Christ-centered learning environment inspired by Reggio Emilia. We are committed to hiring, developing and supporting teaching staff who embrace this approach.
The Reggio Emilia’s pedagogy begins with the foundational view that children capable, with that in mind Reggio supports a student-centered and constructivist view that uses self-directed, experiential learning in relationship-driven environments. The program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery through a self-guided curriculum. At its core is an assumption that children form their own personality during early years of development and are endowed with "a hundred languages", through which they can express their ideas. The aim of the Reggio approach is to teach how to use these symbolic languages (e.g., painting, sculpting, drama) in everyday life. It was developed after World War II by pedagogist Loris Malaguzzi, parents and teachers in the villages around Reggio Emilia, Italy, and derives its name from the city.
Individual is Respected
We believe that children are competent learners, capable of engaging fully with ideas and the world around them. Teachers and children research and co-construct knowledge and foster curiosity, experimentation and the expression of ideas. Teachers use documentation of the process of learning to revisit the children’s ideas and to include parents in the life of the school.
Infusion Christian Preschool believes that education should focus on each child in relation to a community of others, rather than each child in isolation. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of children’s social skills, including building friendships, respect for others, conflict resolution and advocating for one’s needs and ideas. Our goal is to promote self-esteem and problem-solving abilities, which helps children gain the confidence to face new experiences.
Infusion Preschool helps children develop a positive disposition toward learning, which provides a foundation for academic success. We believe we are co-learners with the children and our goal is to support a love of learning in our students so they will become lifelong learners.
