Branches Atelier is committed to creating high-quality, creative, dynamic, educational programs for children, families and educators. We are a social constructivist program, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.

Based on our fundamental belief that children learn best when their work is meaningful and in a social context, we integrate all areas of curriculum though short-term explorations and long-term project . Children are viewed as protagonists in their learning and are encouraged to work in collaboration with their peers to co-construct new theories and ideas.

The programs are staffed by co-teachers, in addition to the atelierista/director,  resulting in a ratio of 6:1, often 4:1.

Our school year runs ten months from September through June.

We are closed for four weeks vacation during the school year, two weeks for winter and two weeks for spring break.

In addition to national holidays, we are closed for five days throughout the year for professional development.

In July, we offer a four-week summer camp, which follows a schedule similar to the school-year preschool program.
