United Hearts Community School blends the Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and Waldorf approaches into a single preschool class to create a rich and holistic learning environment for children. Each of these approaches has unique principles and methodologies, by using careful planning and adaptation, we incorporate elements from all three approaches. The framework to blending these approaches:


Incorporating process art into early childhood education programs acknowledges and values children's natural curiosity, creativity, and individuality. It provides a holistic approach to learning, supporting their cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development in a joyful and meaningful way.


Incorporating African and Afro-Cuban Latin music in early childhood education not only enriches the musical experiences of children but also promotes cultural diversity, cognitive development, language skills, and social-emotional growth, ultimately fostering well-rounded individuals with a global perspective.


Incorporating nature education into early childhood education programs provides a holistic approach that nurtures children's physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. It lays the foundation for a lifelong connection with nature and promotes environmental consciousness, well-being, and a sense of wonder and curiosity about the world.
