O’Hana’s programs are based on the Reggio Emilia Approach, an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education. Your child, their interests, abilities and talents form the core of our programs.
We maintain the same teaching group throughout all programs so your child can build strong, loving relationships with their friends and their teachers for these important early years.
Our classrooms are designed to NAEYC Global standards. Every area is specifically caters for the development needs of each group with harmony and balance considered as important elements in our design.
The Early Years are a period of both great opportunity and vulnerability. The experiences of early childhood set the stage for later health, wellbeing and learning. Many preschool programs overlook this importance and instead build young children’s academic skills in an effort to ensure they are prepared for school. However, a growing body of research demonstrates the strong link between young children’s social-emotional competence and their cognitive development, language skills, mental health and school success. At O’Hana, our preference is for a more open-ended construction of learning for your child. We’d rather focus on developmental goals as well specific learning outcomes and make sure the quality of educational experience is innovative, inspirational and based on your child and his or her interests, abilities and talents.
