Collage Day School recently hosted a workshop on an educational philosophy rooted in Italy that focuses on viewing children as individuals who are curious and have powerful potential to learn. Angela Fowler, executive director and lead consultant of Cultivating the Early Years, led the workshop on the concept known as the Reggio Emilia Approach.

She is working with Collage to integrate the philosophy into the Ponte Vedra Beach school.
