What is Reggio Emilia All About?

Tuesday June 20, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy based on the image of the child, and of human beings, as possessing strong potentials for development and as a subject of rights who learns and grows in the relationships with others.

This global educational project, which is carried forth in the Municipal Infant-toddler Centers and Preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, and has inspired other schools all over the world, is based on a number of distinctive characteristics: the participation of families, the collegial work of all the personnel, the importance of the educational environment, the presence of the atelier and the figure of the atelierista, the in-school kitchen, and the pedagogical coordinating team.

Join us as Suzanne Price of Sunshine Special Children's Studio and Early Childhood Educator Heidi Harris share key components of the Reggio Emilia philosophy in this interactive session.

This program is in partnership with the Wonder of Learning: 100 Languages of Children Exhibit (at the U-M Stamps School of Art and Design & the James and Anne Duderstadt Center on North Campus) and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance.
