MENUMENU

Meet some of our teachers. Rabbit Patch Preschool is extremely fortunate to have a wealth of talented, passionate and experienced people who make up the rich fabric of the school.

Our Centre Managers have worked together for many years  to embed our philosophy and pedagogy which is inspired by the world renowned schools for young children in Reggio Emilia,  Italy, which incorporates social constructivist theory.  They have worked tirelessly to learn and understand this inspiring approach, and to mentor and support teachers in their understandings of the philosophy.   We continue to engage in exploring and deepening our understanding about how these central ideals are incorporated in our programme.
