Our Philosophy



Fortune Preschool is from the creators of Fortune School, a PK-12 network of public charter schools focused on closing the African American achievement gap. Fortune Preschool is influenced by the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The approach focuses on how children learn, their relationship to the world around them, and the joy children experience from learning.


Foundations of the Reggio Emilia Approach


  • The image of the child
  • The child’s relationships and interactions within a system
  • The role of parents
  • The third teacher, the environment
  • Teachers and children are partners in learning
  • The power of documentation
