Our environment mirrors a city in which there is a central plaza that is representative of the traditional Italian town square. In the plaza, students can mingle. There are no hallways to interrupt continuity so that the children can observe the cooks or whoever else might pass by. There is freedom of movement between areas, including outside so that children can see all activities unfolding.

Teachers engage in great family engagement as they provide parents with notes and photographs of the day and invite them to linger on the couches that provide kids’-eye views. Children are seen as the “fourth teachers” themselves, born with the ability to be learned from, listened to, and be respected. The teacher’s role is of listening and guidance. The program benefits the students’ creativity as it provides all of the outlets necessary for self-guidance and self-expression.
