Imagine a world where educators, families, the community build education together with their children ...

remida piazza prampolini 2005a

  • How can parents, educators and policy-makers work together to activate education fit for children?
  • How can educators, parents and children communicate, value and share their learning?

A day exploring the vital experience of Reggio Emilia, a modern European city, for all concerned in defending and building education in the UK.

Reggio Emilia regards itself as 'a city of education.'  Since 1945 this experience has grown with parents, community, educators striving to grow and understand and prioritise, working closely together all the way.

In a period in the UK when educators and parents are finding a common voice to express what education should be like for their children, in a time when ‘policy’ is increasingly at odds with these visions, it is a time to learn and act.

The experience of the citizens of Reggio has much to say to us, in these times.
This day will explore the inspiring experience of parents and educators of Reggio Emilia learning and building schools together, brick by brick, and discovering how their preschool and primary education is being nurtured and made visible in the city. We will consider how the Reggiane experience can inform the efforts of UK educators and parents in creating intelligent education together.

Presentations by Moira Nicolosi, Reggio Emilia educator, with additional UK examples from Sightlines’ Network.

Date Saturday 11th November 2017
