Voyages’ early childhood programs are based on the practices of teachers in Reggio Emilia which are founded on a high regard for what each child is capable of and the idea that the co-construction of knowledge leads to a strong foundation for learning and knowing. We continue the interconnection of the parents, teachers, environment, and child as the fertile classroom of learning. We enrich everyday normalcy with expressive materials to explore and convey meaning. We believe in supporting each other’s professional development regarding the aforementioned areas and are happy to train the newest member of our teaching community.

The latest from Voyages Preschool Schoolhouse

Our students decided to use mixed media to create themselves using @juxtaposepix , a digital app, to bring it all together. We embrace digital technology as a medium because children experience it daily and need to know it as a creative tool. Juxtaposer doesn’t replace drawing or storytelling; it’s a tool to expand the imagination into the digital realm. So we invited the children to dream of what they could become.

Our students have spent the year focusing on ways to connect during a time of social distancing. The book “The Invisible Steing” by Patrice Karst @theinvisiblestringinsta has brought tremendous comfort and guidance to our students and teachers. The graduating students were inspired to draw their visual representation of a heart strong and the hand signals they invented to tell someone that they care. This image will be etched into all of our memories for a very long time. #theinvisiblestring #patricekarst #heartstrings #classof2021

Happy Mother’s Day to those who observe! A mother comes in many forms, as a mom, an aunt, a friend and even a father. Maternal instinct comes in any shape and size and we celebrate it all. We hope your day is filled with dancing, hugs and laughter. #happymothersday #keepdancing

We hope we run into you at this @lacma exhibit, because we definitely plan on taking a look at this beautiful and powerful poster project to help visually represent the many perspectives on neurodiversity.

The Mind’s Eye: A LACMA Poster Project
The Mind’s Eye looks inclusively at art and creativity as they intersect with a diverse range of perspectives, taking into account the unique experience, imaginative potential, and specific struggles that may come with neurodiversity. Developed as part of WE RISE 2021 in honor of Mental Health Awareness month, LACMA has commissioned graphic works by five artists to be displayed on vinyl clings installed along the construction fence on Wilshire Boulevard. Scoli Acosta, Andy Alexander, The Revolution School, Favianna Rodriguez, and Kerry Tribe all use a range of aesthetic strategies—from figurative painting, to text-based conceptual works, to game structures—to create a series of posters that evoke the myriad possibilities for meaningful connection and communication within human experience. As we collectively work to envision and shape a future that centers diversity, equity, and inclusion, a deeper understanding of neurodiversity can offer models of resilience, authenticity, and innovation.
