REGGIO INSPIRED Pre-Kindergarten

Reggio Inspired Pre-Kindergarten Classrooms are hailed as the best early education model in the world. The Reggio Emilia approach has been written in Newsweek, World Reports, and  through the National Association for the Education of Young Children. 

TLS has embraced the Reggio Approach for the last 16 years, resulting in an exemplary Pre-Kindergarten (serving 4-5 year olds) with a world class reputation in the  right here in Flathead Valley.

What is a Reggio Inspired Approach?

Children are seen as competent, curious, inventive and learn from interaction with the environment, peers, and adults in a joyful classroom.

Curriculum is developmentally appropriate and viewed as “emergent “ - where literacy, math, science are purposefully integrated without a “drill & kill” or worksheet methods.

Project based, interest based learning through design, art, engineering, nature, and more are evident.

Documentation and parent communication are paramount, through the technology of Kaymbu which brings the classroom alive to parents in real time assessment ( video captures, snapshots, photos, developmental milestone recordings)

TLS Reggio Pre-K students are well prepared for Kindergarten. Many explode into reading, writing, and math by the end of the year – naturally. Students are individualized- our faculty meet each child where they are at – if reading- they will offer books and materials at the right level for each child.

Hands On / Read World Field Trips as well as Community Based Guest Speakers are a regular feature inspiring higher level questions and curiosity about the world.

(A Reggio Inspired Approach is not a certification.  It is a philosophy, an art & science that comes from careful observation, listening, and practice)    We have the best Reggio Inspired PreK Teacher.

Trinity Lutheran Elementary School will present a Bible-based, Christ-centered and Heaven-directed program to mold and build the life of a child.  See Trinity School Parent/Student Handbook for “A Credo on Christian Education.”

 Trinity Lutheran Pre-Kindergarten will provide a Christ-Centered, safe and developmentally appropriate environment for your Pre-Kindergartener.  We plan to meet these needs by providing a Christ-centered learning environment to meet individual needs, by encouraging development and learning through a set daily schedule, and having a well integrated program developed to meet the language, cognitive, social/emotional and physical needs of your child. 

The teacher will assess the Pre-Kindergartener’s individual learning and development throughout the year and will keep parent’s informed on their child’s accomplishments and needs. It is not unusual for a Pre-Kindergartner to develop quickly in one or more areas and slower in another.  Many areas need to be developed at these early years and every child in every stage develops at different rates.  In most cases, development comes with exposure and time.  Pre-Kindergartner’s cannot be forced to learn these new skills but can be given the time needed with a rich & stimulating environment to learn in. These early childhood years are exciting and powerful years for building positive attitudes towards learning and school.
