Bold Park Community School [BPCS] is an independent co-educational school in Perth,Western Australia,catering for children aged three to seventeen years.
BPCS views children as strong and powerful contributors to their own learning, and gears the curriculum to suit the individual child whilst maintaining government standards.The philosophy and teaching style of the school takes inspiration from many educational philosophers and current research including Social Constructivist philosophers and educators, John Dewend Lev Vygotsky, nature and place based education and brain research, and the work of the schools of Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy.
The 'Reggio approach' to learning has excited interest and admiration throughout the world and has become renowned for providing high quality education for young children. The 'Reggio approach' is just that, an approach. We do not aim to copy Reggio as our culture is different from that of an Italian community. The key principles of Reggio are adapted to our own community and culture.
