The Margaux School at Temple Judea is a Coral Gables pre school that is easily reached by people that live in Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, and South Miami. Our teachers are deeply committed to high quality early childhood education, and we understand the fact that the stakes are high.
When a child’s first learning experiences are truly enjoyable, it sets the tone for the future. This is something that we take to heart, and we find that our students look forward to the time that they spend at our pre school.
Reggio Emilia Approach
Reggio Emilia is a city in Italy, and there are a number of villages surrounding it. During the years immediately following World War II, Loris Malaguzzi, a local educator, worked with area parents to establish a unique early childhood education concept. Over the years, it has proven to be extremely successful, and this is the approach that we take here at The Margaux School.
One of the core tenets of the approach is the belief that children should have some control, or agency, over their learning, because they are active participants in the learning process and will be more engaged when the experience has meaning to them. Experiential learning is critical to this philosophy. Our students touch things, listen to the sounds around them, explore movement, and become observers of their surroundings.
Interactions with other children are very important for socialization and group learning, and we facilitate collaborative projects on a daily basis. Expression is another guiding principle. Children should be given access to countless different ways to express themselves, and they have these opportunities at our school.
