Preschool Feast Builds Community
Our Preschool classes held their annual Fall Feast in the gym recently.
Students made hand-printed placemats and table decorations for the event.
The meal was potluck style, with each family bringing in a dish specially requested by their child to share.
During the event, families wrote down things they are thankful for on cut-out feathers that were attached to a shared turkey display.
Shared mealtimes in Reggio are held in high regard, and our educational philosophy values children, educators, and family members all eating together laughing, sharing stories, and enjoying each other’s company as a form of building community!
