Saint Anne’s Day School has been a thriving mission of the church ever since. In 1994, the Day School learned of the world-renowned preschools and infant toddler centers in Reggio-Emilia, Italy. Educators were intrigued with how the values of the schools in that Italian municipal system resonated with their own beliefs about young children’s learning. Thus began a journey of studying the Reggio-Emilia Approach.
In 2004, Dr. Margie Cooper invited Saint Anne’s Day School to become a member of Project Infinity, a collaborative school development project supported by the non-profit organization that Dr. Cooper founded, Inspired Practices in Early Education, Inc. This invitation signified an important milestone in the Day School’s continuing evolution and marked a genuine school-wide commitment to interpret the values of the a Reggio-inspired philosophy in the context of Saint Anne’s Day School.
