About us

Artsy Planet™ (AP) is an art academy with the aim to promote and disseminate high quality early childhood education worldwide. At AP, we base our efforts on the fundamental values and principles of the Reggio Emilia approach, and endeavour to support ongoing connection among artists, educators, students and parents.

We believe all children are born with tremendous potential and are active participants in their own learning. They seek to examine, experience, and connect with people and phenomena surrounding them. We also believe that intelligent children deserve intelligent teachers and quality educational programs.

We provide an innovative studio-based learning and development experience for children aged 3-9 years. Our program is based on an adaptation of the exemplary arts-centered teaching approach know as Reggio Emilia. Children are incredibly competent beings that flourish in environments that support their multiple intelligences through play-based art projects that facilitate inquiry. They have multiple intelligences and limitless ways of expressing, understanding and engaging with the world. At AP, we support children to thrive and realize their full potential as competent individuals with 100 languages.

We offer professionally developed curriculum that focuses on cultivating children’s intrinsic motivation towards learning and developing social skills, creative problem solving, and artistic (sensory) development. Our program is committed to exposing children to multi-modal ways of working through exposure to inspirational artists and artworks, diverse two and three-dimensional materials and mediums of art including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, assemblage, collage and mixed media work. Our teachers are experienced art educators that receive specialized training in early artistic development and the Reggio Emilia approach.

In addition, we provide customized teacher training, curriculum development and teaching environment setup services and consultations.

Reggio Emilia Approach


The Reggio Emilia approach was hailed in Newsweek magazine as the best early childhood education model in the world, "an international role model", "Pioneering" and "outstanding".

Reggio Emilia is a city in northern Italy that resides in a province by the same name. Collaborating with the local community, the educator and psychologist Loris Malaguzzi built schools and an innovative approach to education from the ground up in 1946. This studio-based approach is now recognized around the world as one of the leading methods for early childhood and primary education.

The Reggio Emilia approach to education begins with a particular and strong image of children, of adults, of education, and of life, and flows from a set of guiding principles. This unique approach is committed to creating learning environments and opportunities that enhance and cultivate a child’s development by fully engaging the 100 languages of a child, which refer to the multiple intelligences and expressive, communicative and cognitive capacities of all children.  With over 50,000 children in over 34 countries, this compelling studio based approach is the foundation of our unique AP curriculum.
