Welcome To The Emilia Schools

We offer a wide range of high quality curriculum and hands-on activities



The Emilia Schools is a premier Reggio Inspired Child Care Center located in the Columbus area. We offer a hands-on child interest based environment serving children ages 6 weeks through 10 years. We place a large emphasis in allowing children to explore and learn at their own pace in a non-traditional setting where we have natural classroom and playground environments.

Our welcoming environment promotes respect for others, confidence, creativity, discovery, and a love for learning. We encourage your family to be a part of the Emilia School family and we are excited about the opportunity to be a part of your child’s success.

A Better Way To Learn

Each child has a unique way of learning. The Emilia Schools provides each child with engaging, flexible curriculum designed to inspire active learning and development.
Reggio Emilia Method
We encourage children to be independent, expand their boundaries through discovery and reach their full potential with child-centered, hands-on learning.
Emergent Curriculum
Children learn best when their
interests are captured. Our teachers
facilitate the learning process
based on the interests “emerging”
in each child.
Steam Method
We prepare 21st century learners. We provide programs for our
children using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) learning.

The Emilia Schools is devoted to excellence in offering a state-of-the-art facility, experienced educators and healthy meals for your children as they develop and grow into strong leaders.
