Reggio Emilia Approach in Taipei for children 3-8

At Tinkerseeds we intentionally look for ways to build meaningful learning experiences that will have lasting and impactful learning outcomes. The children at Tinkerseeds aren't just learning their ABCs. They're learning how to use language to make connections with their ideas and with their classmates. By focusing on meaningful education, we are developing children to start thinking for themselves and expressing their ideas rather than just repeating after others.

Playful Learning

Our program exists at the intersection of playful and intellectually-rigorous learning with our unique approach to education. We combine literacy with creative expression driven by children's shared interests as part of a group. Children will have the chance to listen to engaging stories and then begin to create their own stories both as individuals and in groups. Our program will support our emerging authors as we build their vocabulary and language skills in order for them to tell deeper and more complex stories, all from their own imagination and ingenuity.

The direction and nature of the projects are a collaborative process with the teachers and the children. A curriculum emerges and starts to take shape as our teacher-researchers actively document and analyze the thoughts and explorations taking place in the classroom. As we progress through projects we will thoughtfully support the learning by teaching certain skills and introducing concepts. This way students learn to use new skills and ideas in meaningful ways.

This emergent curriculum does not just happen by chance. Our teacher-researchers carefully plan and design the learning experiences with intention, paying close attention to the possibilities of where children might go with their ideas. Not every planned possibility may come to fruition, but this flexibility in how we plan allows us to learn alongside the children and keep the learning close to where the children are. We are reflective teachers responding to emerging interests and ideas in the classroom.

Reggio Emilia Inspired

Inspired by the municipal schools of Reggio Emilia in Italy, Tinkerseeds Children's Workshop is the culmination of the work we've done with children over the years. We follow social constructivist philosophy and are also heavily influenced by the work of Lev Vygotsky and John Dewey. Our founders and teachers are passionate educators, dedicated to innovating and raising the standard for high quality English-immersion education through our work.

We offer programs for two distinct groups of students: 3-6 year olds and 6-8 year olds. Both programs are experiential learning experiences driven by playful inquiry with rich literacy and art projects. Find out more about our programs.
