WE ARE PLAY BY NATURE!

Play by nature is a workshop program focused on the Reggio Emilia approach. We provide educational, engaging and entertaining workshops for kids using the environment as the main teacher. 
 
We are focused on the principles of respect, responsibility & communication through exploration & play. 
 
We believe that children are able to construct their own learning. They are inspired by their own interest to know and to learn at a pace they feel the most comfortable at.
 
We choose to listen carefully through their many languages, not just through speech but through art & play as well.

WHAT IS THE REGGIO EMILIA APPROACH?

The reggio emilia approach is an early childhood education program that puts children in the driver’s seat. The approach sees them as curious individuals with the potential to develop and learn at their own pace from their environment and the relationships they build with others.

 

Instead of viewing children as having needs which must be fulfilled, they are viewed as strong and intelligent individuals who should be given opportunities to reach their potential.
