Youngsters in Sumner County have a new place to grow with the recent opening of Enchanté Child Development Center. Enchanté provides a Reggio Emilia-inspired learning environment for ages 6 weeks - 5 years. The center is now accepting applications.

THE REGGIO EMILIA PHILOSOPHY

A Reggio Emilia approach is an educational philosophy focusing on preschool and primary education. It utilizes self-directed, experiential learning in relationship-driven environments.  The program works with principles of respect, responsibility and community through exploration and discovery through a self-guided curriculum.
