Bigelow Cooperative

Main content

Bigelow emphasizes a play based approach to learning. Our curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy highlighting children as competent, capable learners. Each room has a routine which provides time for personal choices in play as well as more structured activities. Teachers emphasize hands-on experiential learning through age-appropriate social interactions, cultural awareness and learning non-violent problem solving skills. All families are involved in the operation and governance of the Center.
