The Reggio Emilia approach is a world-renowned educational philosophy originating from the preschools of Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy and was inspired by Loris Malaguzzi following the Second World War. Central to the philosophy is the importance of creativity and developing the child as a confident independent thinker. The Reggio approach is a body of pedagogical thought and practice – the result of many years of commitment to young children and their families and pedagogy builds on many previous educators such as Froebel, Dewey and Vygotsky. There are several aspects of the Reggio early years school system that stand out. Central is a powerful image of the child – strong, competent, and naturally curious about the world and capable of constructing their own learning.
During the sessions participants will develop an understanding of:
· The teacher as co-learner, emergent curriculum, children with direction over their learning
· The 100 languages of children– the endless opportunities for creative expression
· The role of Atelieristas – artists in residence/ studio spaces
· The importance of the environment – physical space/resources as third teacher
· The value of high-quality reflective documentation
· The importance of relationships and parents as partners. How Reggio practitioners work together with parents
· Working together with the local community and long term projects
