Pillars of CGL

Stemming from and inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood education, Children's Garden of Learning approaches its curriculum planning based on three things:


It is through play that children explore boundaries, ability, arenas of and stages leading to physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.


The foundation of our curriculum, the environment we create is critical to the success of learning at CGL.


Children’s themes, not the adult’s that we use as the basis of our planning. The teacher’s plans are a thoughtful introduction of materials to stimulate the emergence of these themes.
