Montessori and Reggio Inspired

We offer curriculum that is inspired by the Montessori and Reggio approaches to education. Montessori is a child-centered education philosophy that sees the teacher’s role as more of an assistant to the students as they navigate materials and learn at their own pace. The Reggio is method is project-based — lessons are based on the interests of the students. We also support The Creative Curriculum® at Vinci Academy in Mountain Lakes to utilize exploration and discovery in the learning process. We have a strong focus on STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – in our approach to education.

Health and Safety

We know that your child is precious to you, which is why their health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. We take the appropriate measures to ensure that our facilities are cleaned and protected so that you can feel confident about your child’s safety when you drop them off each day.

Wellness and Sanitation

We monitor children during the course of the day to be aware of any symptoms they may present. During the cold and flu season, we increase our assessments so that you can rest easy when it comes to your child’s health. If your child does not feel well, then we will contact you to pick them up so that we can prevent any illness from spreading. We also use daily electronic reporting to give you real-time information and additional peace of mind.

At Vinci Academy in Mountain Lakes, rooms are sanitized three times a day with non-toxic cleaning products. All of our cleaning supplies are securely stored and locked out of the reach of children.
