Overview

Overview

St. Anne's Day School says

Believing that the Church can provide an environment in which the child may grow "in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man", St. Anne's offers the highest standards of quality early childhood education. In an environment of love and respect, each child is given the opportunity to expand his/her concept of the world. Our well-rounded program provides for developmentally appropriate growth emotionally, cognitively, socially and physically, as well as spiritually. Children learn to initiate choices of activities, as well as having teacher-initiated instruction times. Our goals include increasing each child's capacity to reason and encouraging a spirit of inquiry in a creative learning environment. Most of all, St. Anne's Day School wants your child to know that he/she is a worthy person, acceptable and lovable just as God made him/her. Having a good self-concept and the opportunity to learn in a developmentally appropriate environment are gifts that last a lifetime. St. Anne's Day School works in collaboration with other schools throughout the U.S. who are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education.

Curriculum

At St. Anne’s Day School, we are inspired by the world renowned preschool and infant/toddler centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy. The values and beliefs emphasized in the Reggio Approach include: the image of the child as competent from birth; the importance of the environment of classrooms and school; and the importance of educator collaboration and parent involvement. Learning is made visible by documenting and displaying the child’s words and ideas along with photographs of the ongoing work in the classrooms. Your child has the right to explore his world and at St. Anne’s we create a rich environment filled with a variety of materials and experiences in order for your child to interact with and learn in a respectful community.

St. Anne’s Day School has been on a journey for several years to incorporate the ideas and values we have learned from studying the Reggio Emilia Approach to education. We are a part of a collaboration called Inspired Practices/Project Infinity which consists of seven schools interested in this philosophy. We meet often to keep growing in our understanding as our ongoing commitment to professional development is a high priority. Thanks to the dedication and fundraising of the parents of St. Anne’s Day School, many educators have had the opportunity to participate in study tours to Reggio Emilia. These tours include visits to the schools of Reggio Emilia, as well as to other professional development, conferences and initiatives in the United States.

Mission Statement

The mission of St. Anne’s Day School, a ministry of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta, GA, is to promote a nurturing, enriching environment where each child is respected as a unique gift from God with boundless potential. We strive to promote a collaborative learning community of children, families, and educators, where relationships develop and thrive, where we make meaning of our world through creative inquiry, and where every individual can grow in mind, body and spirit.
