R.I.E (Resources for Infant Educarers)

At RIE, infants are viewed as complete individuals who actively participate in their own development. The approach to caregiving is based on several principles, including respect for children and their abilities, authenticity, trust in a child's ability to explore, careful observation, involvement in caregiving, safety, predictability, freedom of movement and play, and consistency in enforcing rules and limits.

Reggio Emilia

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy that centers around the child, their various modes of expression, the teacher's role, fostering strong relationships, teaching through listening, and the environment as a crucial element in learning. It is based on the belief that children have immense potential for development and are entitled to certain rights, and that they learn through the many languages that are part of human culture and grow through their interactions with others.

PBIS is a school approach that teaches children about behavior expectations and strategies to promote school safety and positive behavior. The emphasis of PBIS is on prevention rather than punishment
