    Curriculum, Transition and School Policies

    What are the Main Differences between Reggio Emilia and Montessori Schools?
    Bellow are the main differences between Reggio Emilia and Montessori Schools/

    • Education level: Reggio Emilia education is primarily intended for preschool and early elementary school. The Montessori approach, meanwhile, can be used in preschool, but also used in elementary and middle school.
    • Learning Philosophy: Reggio Emilia focuses in colavative work offering a Social-Constructivist education where the child’s learning is supported by other. Montessori Schools promote individual work with build-in controls of errors.
    • Academics: Both schools focus on academics in preschool and elementary school. Montessori schools, though, tend to focus more on academics. In particular, they emphasize work over play (more so than Reggio schools).
    • Documentation: Reggio Emilia Schools often displays documentation for the community to see. While Montessori Teacher’s observations are considered private.
    • The arts: Reggio Emilia schools place more emphasis on art than Montessori schools. They promote and encourage the use of many different artistic media and forms of expression. Montessori schools, meanwhile, tend to focus less on the arts: they rarely have time designated for the arts or assign art projects.
    • Projects: Long-term, open-ended projects are a big focus in Reggio schools. While Montessori kids do pursue projects, this is less frequent than in Reggio schools. Moreover, Montessori projects tend to be less open-ended.
    • Technology: Montessori schools tend to use very little modern-day technology in the classroom. Reggio schools, on the other hand, use quite a bit. Reggio teachers, especially, use plenty of technology, such as cameras and video recorders, to observe and document what takes place in the classroom.

    How can I help my child transitioning to preschool?
    Going to preschool brings a good share of emotions, both for parents and children. For a child entering a new environment and meeting new people can close both anxiety and anticipation. Since parents may have conflicting emotions about whether you do children I prepare for preschool, it is important that the decision making process begins in us as parents. The more comfortable we are a about the new stage and the more familiar we are about the transition, the shorter the adjustment period will be for both. Procedures for leaving children in preschool are simple but can be difficult for parents. Preschoolers tend to respond very quickly and positively to routines so follow them at home can help in this transition from home to school.
