I teach at a public preschool on the south side of Chicago. From a play-based approach, to project-based learning - we focus on the idea of 'nothing without joy'. My preschoolers truly embody this vision as they learn and grow. They are 3-5 year olds from varying social and economic backgrounds, who experience my classroom as their first school - often also understanding it as the only definition of school. To maximize children's learning potential, we follow an emergent curriculum that is based out of the interests and leads of children. Teachers take inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach to education, and set up the classroom environment to allow children to create, build, and learn in their own unique ways. The children come together in the 'blended classroom' model, where some of them have developmental delays and some of them are typically developing.
