About the Reggio Emilia Inspired Approach: A History and Definition
The ‘Reggio’ approach to learning has excited interest and admiration throughout the world and has become renowned for providing high quality education for young children. The ‘Reggio approach’ is just that, an approach. We do not aim to copy Reggio as our culture is different from that of the Italian community in Reggio Emilia. The key principles of Reggio are adapted to our own community and culture. The image of the child is central – the child who is curious, full of wonder, rich in resources, able to construct and co-construct his or her own learning. Teachers and students together discover the joy of learning.
