PHOTOS: Early Childhood School Celebrates Student Work During 4th Annual WOW Night
Celebrating and showcasing student work in a variety of disciplines, St. Margaret’s Early Childhood School invited families to campus this week to attend its 4th annual WOW Night.
WOW, or Works of Wonder, shows student projects big and small completed during the course of this school year. Students joyously showed their work to loved ones who attended the big event, and there was also an event for St. Margaret’s professional community earlier in the day.
“We showcase the children’s works of wonder to make visible the children’s learning and thinking, and to highlight what they are capable of doing if we give them the chance to show what they know and trust in their figuring out how the world works,” Early Childhood School Director Cris Lozon said. “The work in the Early School honors a young child’s independence and growth in learning.”
WOW Night consisted of nine classrooms families could visit at their own pace, including:
The Shape of Water
Rainbows, Color and Light
Spectrum of Texture
Creative Structures: Houses, Habitats and Homes
Water, Water Everywhere
Builders of the Future
Connecting Art and Science
St. Margaret’s Early Childhood School is a play- and researched-based academic program with roots in constructivist teaching and the renowned Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. Reggio Emilia schools have a design of openness to community and a willingness to share ideas, which inspired the first WOW Night in 2019.
