Our Environoment

Research at Reggio Emilia, RE, (one of the world’s most highly acclaimed early years’ teaching methodologies hailing from Reggio Emilio, Italy), shows that children learn with deep understanding by watching, interacting and working within an organic and nurturing environment; from the world around them.

At Kara we believe that a child’s environment can be divided into two domains:

Physical

In keeping with the RE philosophy, the physical environment at Kara is a highly effective teaching tool and much planning goes into its creation: Classrooms have large windows that flood rooms with light and fresh air. All areas incorporate open spaces that allow children to freely move around and select how they want to work. Walls are decorated with children's work, giving a strong sense of ownership and pride; "They like what I do here. They think it's important because it's on display!". Outside areas contain a wide range of child-friendly equipment and activities plus an extensive selection of natural flora and fauna.

Emotional

No matter how appropriate the environment, the curriculum and the faculty, research confirms that children cannot learn or grow as per their natural potential if their emotional environment is in any way stressful or unsafe. Therefore a safe and nurturing environment that focuses on the building of relationships becomes a fundamental component in a child's learning process. To achieve this objective, the Kara team works continuously to weave together the many elements of a comprehensive programme, to create an overall environment that is stimulating yet emotionally safe; one that meets the individual learning and emotional needs of each child.

Our Raison d’etre

International research confirms that young children who attend a quality extended preschool and Day Care facility generally outperform those children who do not. The reason ; children who remain at home often lack the required multi-sensorial stimuli required to incite appropriate cognitive, physical and emotional development, resulting in sensory deprivation. Plonking a child in front of a TV with a maid in attendance cannot provide the intellectual and physical development needs of a growing child.

The implementation of comfortable routines on a daily basis - following each child’s Rhythm.of. Childhood - also helps children stay happy and healthy, as setting boundaries from a very young age provides them with the understanding of what is safe, what is right and what is enjoyable. As a consequence, the subsequent graduation into the Main Schools becomes a natural and seamless progression – where learning comes naturally - this is the Kara difference.
