School as Studio

At MRH we have developed metaphors that are used in our schools to describe the teaching and learning that takes place there.

Early Childhood Center – “School as Studio”
The languages of drawing, dance, sculpture, architecture,and drama inspire the thinking and learning in “School as Studio” at MRH Early Childhood Center. This method is shaped by the practices of Reggio Emilia. Founded in the municipal preschools in Italy, Reggio is recognized worldwide for its innovative approach to education, an approach where children are active participants in the teaching and learning process, and which acknowledges the relationships children have with each other and their community.
