From the outset, our Reddam House Early Learning School is influenced by the unique Reggio Emilia approach, recognising and celebrating each child’s innate abilities and gifts. We regard children as competent and capable, and respect childhood as a time to explore, create and be joyful whilst learning. Our Early Learning School environment and teachers also support the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

We believe that we are ‘doing it differently’. The children are welcomed into each room personally by the educators who support each child in the transition between home and school. The door into the Early Learning School is the ‘hinge’ between the two most important worlds in your child’s life.

The rooms are calm, beautiful and organised. Each space is carefully resourced with natural objects matched with palettes of paint or jars of crayons with the intention of inspiring each child to explore colour, shape and pattern. Construction areas have the beginning of a building to extend and motivate children into their own buildings and imaginative play. In each corner of each room there is a spark of interest waiting for a child to take this forward and direct their own learning and answer their own questions.

We inspire the children to have confidence and imagination towards how they will proceed with their activities, to become creative and critical thinkers who can learn independently. This is what we believe is the most important part of the education we provide at the Early Learning School. Please do come and visit us, taking part in an individual tour so that we can demonstrate to you how all of our children are learning and enjoying their experiences in our school.

Testimonial Quote

The Reddam House Constantia Early Learning School provides a warm, nurturing environment with three unique, separate gardens for the children's specific developmental and growth needs. On-campus occupational therapy enhances fine motor skills while support therapies are offered in the forms of Speech and Language therapy. An aftercare facility, the Adventure Zone, provides nutritious meals delivered from Kauai. The teachers are warm, empathetic and nurturing and make it their priority to celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The children are skilled and equipped age appropriately in order to ensure a sound foundation on which to further grow their skills. Our motto of "We shall give back" is instilled in the children from an early age and the children are encouraged to participate in tangible projects where they can be part of the process. The children are taught to be logical and creative thinkers who make responsible choices.

We welcome applications for children aged 1 to 6 years.

WELCOME TO OUR EARLY LEARNING SCHOOL


Reddam House schools pride themselves on applying the unique Reggio Emilia educational approach to pre-school education. A teaching philosophy first developed in post-war Italy, it focuses on recognising and celebrating each individual pre-school child’s innate abilities and gifts. Children are regarded as competent and capable in their own right and the philosophy respects childhood as a time to explore, create and be joyful.

The layout of the physical space at Reddam House Constantia has been designed to encourage choices, problem solving and exploration. Teachers are skilled observers who determine individual needs and build on existing gifts and talents. The approach is balanced and giving, without undue academic pressure. The methodology encourages a feeling of belonging and instills innate confidence in children. Their learning environment is made to feel safe, welcoming and authentic.

Documentation of work in progress is made visible on large panels throughout the classroom, thereby keeping the memory of the work vivid and alive.
