OUR PROGRAMS

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Partners in Learning.
My First Place is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy and we are committed to providing and inspiring a love of learning from the early years. A child has a hundred languages and a hundred ways to express, learn and play. At My First Place we communicate with the children in English and Spanish and encourage families with multiple languages to continue the learning within our school.

We designed our school to offer a natural, diverse, creative, clean and safe environment to inspire our children to have a deep understanding and respect of the power and complexity of nature and the world around them. The materials we use have aesthetic qualities to inspire the children to see the beauty in everything. Fresh flowers in the classrooms help the children understand and reflect on the beauty of nature and to open communications with their five senses. We value the child’s voice and see them as capable and strong and through their eyes we learn about their view of the world through play.

Children of all ages learn best in spaces where they feel safe to explore and engage and My First Place is the perfect environment for that. We pride ourselves on providing a healthy hot family style lunch daily as we believe that sharing the experience of food develops healthy eating habits and builds good social behavior. Visuals, music, dance and drama are equally important to children’s development and we strongly believe that our weekly enrichment classes bring about a contagious enthusiasm and connection to the arts.
