The Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Childhood Education


A Reggio Emilia Inspired Program


What is The Reggio Emilia Approach?


"Learning is the key factor in which a new way of teaching should be based, becoming a complementary resource to the child and offering multiple options, suggestive ideas, and sources of support.

Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the water flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the river.

Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn."
