It was important for us to pick us a school that would be understanding of the transition from being at home in L.A., to moving to a new country, meeting new friends, and attending a new school. Prior to picking Blue House, we toured many schools but knew in our hearts we wanted a Reggio Emilia-inspired school. We think the philosophy aligns with our parenting style! We prefer programmes that are child-led and research-based, especially at this age. We think that children learn emotional intelligence through play, develop confidence and learn problem-solving skills. It also teaches them how to cooperate with other kids and stimulates creativity. Children learn so much through play and when they learn based on their interests, they truly excel.
