Reggio Emilia Inspired Child Care Curriculum

At Highway Child Care and Early Learning Centre our programs are inspired by the principles of Reggio Emilia and values the child as co-constructors of their own learning.

The Reggio Emilia approach is an innovative and inspiring approach that values the child as an individual who is respected, capable and is a citizen with rights.

Your Local Salisbury Child Care and Early Learning Centre

Our Highway Child Care and Early Learning Centre is located at 267 Salisbury Highway, Salisbury Downs 5108.
We view each child as a citizen of our community and understand that they are competent and capable beings with inherent rights from the moment of their birth.
Research tells us that children learn well when they are in a relaxed, safe trusting environment where they feel valued and they belong, acknowledged as a citizen of that community: We believe this to be the basis of success in our responsive learning environment.
We want you and your child to feel welcomed and part of a wonderful community from the moment you step through our door. We will ensure continuity of care, and work to support parents through our primary care groups.That said we are unique in having one of the longest standing beautiful, natural gardens for learning in Adelaide. Our children spend most of their learning time outside, exploring the many possibilities of nature. Everyone is connected in the garden. We learn about Aboriginal culture and connection to land, we learn about nature, it’s beauty and cycles; we play games that grow and grow and grow with our imaginations; we learn songs and dances, stories and plays.
