The Reggio Emilia educational approach was born in post-WWII Italy out of the all-encompassing need to bring change and create anew within society. The result is progressive and cooperative educational philosophy resting on social constructivism, focusing on the child's own interests, sensory experiences, relationships with other members of the community & the environment and opportunities for self-expression and development. As parents are increasingly seeking out holistic, experimental educational approaches for their little diamonds in the rough, we are here to help you understand the particularities of one of the oldest, leading and most wonderful among them - the Reggio Emilia approach.
