Our Forest Philosophy
SAFE OUTSIDE LEARNING
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CENTERED CURRICULUM
Emerging Sprouts merges the child centered Reggio Emilia philosophy with the Forest School philosophy. Traditionally we have met outside 100% of our school year, with COVID19 we are now supporting families in creating small Homeschool Forest Pods. We have created Emerging Learners in this uncertain time of COVID19 to support families who know that in person learning is best for their child. Emerging Learners helps families bring the best of our Forest School curriculum to your small pods of families! In person and safe education can continue this school year, and we are here to help make that happen.
Principles by which we guide our curriculum:
We see children as co-creators of their learning process in the forest and the classroom.
We provide Reggio Emilia inspired Forest School curriculum. We believe each group of children bring their own unique interests to school. Our curriculum is based on the interest of the group, ever-changing and documented by our teachers on a daily basis.
At Emerging Learners we believe that every child should have access to expansive nature, nurturing teachers, and peer to peer education.
Emma Emmerich, Founder and Director of Emerging Sprouts and Emerging Learners is an Early Childhood Specialist and has been working in the field of Early Childhood Education for the past 15 years.
