This website is specifically for the elementary art studio at School Within School, a Reggio Emilia-inspired public school located in Washington, D.C.
The SWS mission is to support and develop children’s potential through a uniquely child-centered, collaborative learning environment inspired by the schools for young children in Reggio Emilia, Italy. SWS was founded in 1995 by teachers who sought to apply the Reggio principles to early childhood education.
The SWS Reggio-inspired program is a project-based approach to education which enables children to influence the direction of their learning. The project approach allows us to use the Common Core State Standard as a framework for delving deeper into long-term learning experiences.
