The Center for Early Childhood Education at NVCC, which was then Mattatuck Community College, opened its doors in January 1977 to provide a training laboratory for early childhood education majors at the college as well as a quality educational environment for young children ages 3 - 6.
The initial set-up of the center included one large preschool and a toddler classroom. Today there are three classrooms, including two preschools, one with an integrated Kindergarten component, a toddler class.
The enrollment of the center includes children of staff, faculty, students and the local community.
In 1998, the Center for Early Childhood Education at NVCC received a school readiness grant from the state of Connecticut, expanding it’s role in the community through collaboration with the Waterbury School System. There are currently 20 full-time slots and two part-time slots designated under the umbrella of Waterbury School Readiness.
The Center has evolved through the years to become a nationally accredited, high-quality model school that serves as the training ground for approximately 40 early childhood education students per year as well as students in other related disciplines, such as psychology, English and nursing.
The Center is the only training facility in the state to incorporate the Reggio Emilia approach into its teacher preparation program as well as fully utilize the approach in the classrooms with young children.
High-interest, in-depth studies that encompass a variety of learning and embedded curriculum and assessment are considered the Project Approach.
THE HUNDRED LANGUAGES OF CHILDREN
Reggio Emilia Italia
No Way. The hundred is there.*
is made of one hundred.
The child has a hundred languages
a hundred hands
a hundred thoughts
a hundred ways of thinking
of playing, of speaking.
A hundred always a hundred
ways of listening
of marveling of loving
a hundred joys
for singing and understanding
a hundred worlds
a hundred wolds
The child has
a hundred languages
(and a hundred, hundred, hundred more)
but they steal ninety-nine.
The school and the culture
separate the head from the body.
They tell the child:
to think without hands
to do without head
to listen and not to speak
to understand without joy
to love and to marvel
only at Easter and Christmas.
to discover the world already there
and of the hundred
they steal ninety-nine.
that work and play
reality and fantasy
science and imagination
sky and earth
reason and dream
that do not belong together.
And thus they tell the child
that the hundred is not there.
The child says:
No way. The hundred is there.
