Reggio-Inspired ECDP & Kindergarten

We are part of the Fort McMurray Public School Division. Our ECDP and kindergarten program operates out of Christina Gordon Public School. Our Early Learning programs follow the Alberta curriculum and the division's frameworks with a Reggio-inspired approach. This means your children will still meet all the same guidelines as students in our regular program, just that the way they experience learning will look very different.

Reggio-Inspired Philosophy

  • Natural Resources that are unusual and interesting recycled materials that stimulate creativity, imagination and exploration

  • The importance of the teacher and the child learning together

  • The environment as “the third teacher”

  • Actively involved in our community

  • Documentation is the ongoing process of capturing the children’s learning

  • Our Reggio-inspired classrooms are calm and inviting spaces filled with wonderment

  • Creativity is sparked by provocations that are located at the learning centres throughout the classrooms

  • Our Reggio-inspired families play a very important role in our program (Reggio-inspired Family Nights)

  • Open ended play-based activities
