Thank you for your interest in The Compass School of Warrenville, Illinois. We are excited to share information with you regarding our Reggio-Inspired early childhood programs.  We believe in the strength, power and potential of every child.  We think that our child-centered philosophy, combined with excellent parent communication, a warm and welcoming school environment, and wonderful teachers will provide your family with an unparalleled early education and child care experience.

What does it mean to be “Reggio-inspired,” you might ask? Here is a brief excerpt from an article in Disney’s Wondertime magazine, titled Shopping For A Preschool:

“The theory: Take the best of Montessori and play-based, blend well, and – ta-da! – you have this artsy, idealistic philosophy that’s so cutting edge and groovy, it’s the basis for Google’s on-site preschool for its Silicon Valley employees. And in Manhattan, former members of Blue Man Group have started their own Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool, the Blue Man Creativity Center… Reggio Emilia gets its name from the small Italian city in which parents, teachers, and public officials banded together to create schools that rose above the lockstep mindset from past decades, opening their first preschool in 1963. In 1991, Newsweek named Reggio Emilia’s school system one of the 10 best in the world. Reggio-inspired schools are still pretty rare (and admissions thus mega-competitive).”

“Cutting edge and groovy”… we think that sounds pretty great!  And after you spend some time visiting our school, we’re convinced that you will think so too!  Our goal is to facilitate meaningful and interesting real-world learning opportunities for your child, which encourage exploration and discovery, and promote a life-long love of learning.  Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope to see you soon!
