Program Philosophy

100_8035 101_2000 101_3883

The Marigold School of Early Learning follows Constructivist Learning Theories.  Constructivism is an educational philosophy that means a young child creates his/ her knowledge through interactions with the environment, fellow children and lastly adult guidance.

As the Owner, Director and Teacher of The Marigold School of Early Learning, I have a Bachelor’s in Human Development with a Focus on Early Childhood Education and a Master’s In Teaching grades Preschool – Eighth. My training is heavy in Piaget and Vygotsky’s Constructivist Theories, and I am very familiar with Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory and use aspects of the Reggio Emilia Learning Philosophy. I believe in a natural holistic way of Teaching and Learning.

Play is a natural way in which young concrete minds are able to inquire, explore and create. Play is a word defined in the field of Early Education as one of the best ways for young children to learn about the environment in which they interact and the various people they form relationships with as they continue to grow and acquire new knowledge.

Often Play is looked upon as nothing special, yet it is a vital part of how young people learn about the world around them and form a strong foundation for all future learning.

Please join me on this wonderful Play inspired journey of learning, and your child will be happy, have a healthy mind and a strong foundation for a successful school career!

  1. I actually went to Reggio Emilia, Italia with my sister who has a doctorate in early childhood education. I traveled as a non participant artist. My sister was deeply impressed with the program.
