The philosophies and teaching styles of RIE, Reggio Emilia, and Montessori have helped form our unique culture and community, a way of life that is distinctively ours. We foster and support each child’s individuality and focus on the development of the whole child. The space is designed to provide learning opportunities through language development, art experimentation, physical exploration, scientific inquiry and creative thinking. Our hope is that Posies kids will grow into conscious and aware citizens. We want you to view Posies as an extension of your home and family. We view the parent’s role in our community not as one of supporter and observer, but as an active participant in your child’s living, learning, and…well, childhood, during his time here. This is the first step in what will hopefully be a long partnership regarding your life’s most precious work: your child.
