Discovery Tree and Arista Schools Approach
Our work is inspired by Piaget and Reggio Emilia philosophy where play is valued and the child is respected as an independent person with plans and ideas. Our responsibilities as early childhood professionals are to provide rich, intentionally curated environments and the time for children to play, execute and explore their unique ideas.
