Birth to Five Years Old

Foundation Program

The Reggio Emilia Approach

The Foundation Program is our Reggio-inspired preschool in Costa Rica. Multilingual, play-based and absolutely joyful, Journey’s Foundation Program serves infants and kids from birth to 5 Years of age.

Spirit of Joy &

We believe in teaching children with a spirit of joy and adventure! A child’s brain develops most rapidly between birth and age six, making these years important for growth.

Our early education philosophy is designed to provide a strong educational foundation through provocation (asking great questions!).

Journey teachers provide the opportunity for discovery by encouraging active investigation. We promote questioning while guiding and facilitating growth and development.

Provoke Active Exploration

Journey’s preschool program is rooted in early education research which demonstrates the importance of active exploration for growth.

The enriching curriculum of the Foundation Program includes language immersion (Spanish, English and Italian), music and art, farm and garden, swim lessons, as well as thematic study of language arts and mathematics through play.

Journey School offers part and full time options, as well as a year around schedule. For additional information, please download the Preschool Handbook below or contact us to schedule a tour today!
