Our Guiding Principles

In the Reggio Emilia Approach, there is a coined expression, “A child has a hundred languages.” The approach unites and develops all languages-innovation, nature, construction, fantasy, art, music, dance, building, writing, talking, signing, science, body, and soul. The multiple languages are used to help children build knowledge and understand the world around them. 

The guiding principles of Reggio Emilia at FPE include:

  • Considering children as collaborators, communicators, and protagonists
  • Considering the teacher in several roles: as the nurturer, partner, guide, researcher and advocate in their relationship with each child
  • Respecting the foundation of cooperation and collaboration
  • Using the environment as the “third teacher”
  • Addressing parents as partners
  • Considering documentation as a facet of communication


Our school and our students can only thrive and grow with the love and support of our community. Please check out the opportunities to donate here.
