The Curious Kindergarten is a blog written by me, Alexis McDonell. I have my degree in Early Childhood Education from Ryerson University and a B.Ed from OISE. I have been teaching Kindergarten in Toronto for over 10 years (that number still surprises me!). For the past 5 years, I have been implementing a full-day kindergarten program in the TDSB. As a trained ECE, I have always been interested in and inspired by the philosophy of education in Reggio Emilia, Italy. When I started my journey in full-day I decided to implement some Reggio approaches to learning in my classroom. Our learning is a work in progress and I am always looking for ways to improve. Part of the reason I started this blog is that I believe in the importance of self-reflection. I learn so much more about the children and about myself through the process of documenting our learning online. In addition to this blog, I also post daily photos from our classroom on Instagram (@thecuriouskindergarten) and maintain a page on Facebook (The Curious Kindergarten). I hope that you will find some inspiration here. If you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
