Visit St. Anne’s Day School

Ticket required: $40

Saint Anne’s Day School has been a thriving mission of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church since 1966. In 1994, the school learned of the world-renowned preschools and infant-toddler centers in Reggio-Emilia, Italy. Being intrigued with how the values of the schools in that Italian municipal system resonated with their own beliefs about young children’s learning, Saint Anne’s Day School began a journey of studying, collaborating on, and interpreting the Reggio-Emilia Approach in the context of Saint Anne’s Day School. They have become an inspired leader to the Reggio-Emilia approach through Project Infinity, connecting to other schools in Georgia and South Carolina. Tour this thriving early childhood and after-school program campus in the woods of Buckhead, where the rich environment will introduce you to a true application of Reggio-Emilia!
