Our Approach

The school believes in the idea that progressive Reggio Emilia-inspired teaching methods can create a robust and innovative learning environment.

It focuses on a holistic approach that focuses on imparting cognitive skills, language skills, physical and social-emotional learning to children.  The curriculum emphasizes the need for “learning by doing” to encourage students to leverage their curious minds and become actively involved in the progressive learning process.

Our low student-to-teacher ratio of 10:1 assures that teachers work closely with each student, guiding and helping them develop their skills.

SKB Little Folks centers on continued-learning core themes that students take from day one until graduation: respect and courtesy; independence; self-paced learning, and self-constructed learning.

These themes help each student develop successful social and academic skills and reach their highest potential. The school also offers co-curricular activities such as performing arts, visual arts, science, and physical/outdoor education.

It has continued to support its educational mission that “academic growth rests on a solid base of positive social and emotional development.”

To guide children’s educational growth, the classrooms have an abundant supply of materials such as blocks, paint, clay, wood, sand, and water. With the guidance of teachers, children use the materials to explore, experiment, and play.
