This program is especially designed for children who have mastered basic skills sets and are able to focus on projects or individual work for longer periods of time.

And children will learn basic breathing techniques while engaging in yoga exercises. Also each week there will be a music session, which will be taught by professional musician.

At Imagine, small group projects are emphasized. The focus is on working as a team. Each child learns his/her essential role in the project.

The Reggio Emilia curriculum  questions children on what they think rather than traditional curriculum that injects adult thinking. The curriculum also asks children why they think that. In the Reggio approach, teachers ask children why and how to invite their theories instead of facts. By asking why and how, children are asked to think critically.

In traditional education, adult-driven agendas (e.g. letters of the week) greatly limit the opportunities and possibilities for children. Typically, adult curriculum is irrelevant and meaningless to children’s lives. Reggio Emilia philosophy, sees children as individuals within a community of their peers, family, teachers, and society.
