I’m such a HUGE FAN of the Reggio Emilia Approach and have visited many Reggio Emilia inspired pre-schools in Asia with the hope of learning more about it……by the way, I do have LOADS of books about the Reggio Emilia approach and their documentations of children’s work.
I love how so much emphasis is placed into creating an inspiring environment that stimulates learning and engagement by all who seeks it out. However, in my quest to learn more about it, I’ve also seen how Reggio Emilia teachers here struggle to keep as true to the approach as much as possible and it has always been my dream to find out how the teachers in Reggio Emilia do it.
This summer, I finally had the privilege to go right to the source, Reggio Emilia in Italy, to find out they they do it. What I’ve found is not only inspiring and enlightening but was also extremely beautiful because I’ve seen how they managed to maintain balance within their own environment……which in this case……was their town and community.
