Documentation will be provided upon completion of the week
One of the focus of Reggio Emilia Approach is to observe children and listen to their questions and their stories in order to find what interests them. At the end of each week, a report called “documentation” which documents children’s thinking, activities and progression of thoughts will be provided. With the documentation, you can continue to give your child the opportunities to explore his/her interests further, even after the summer camp.
