Introducing Reggio Emilia's Approach

In Dialogue Intro

Early years’ educators aspire to be creative, critical and reflective, knowing that young children are creative, strong, powerful learners, and that educators and children thrive in creative enabling environments. However, it is difficult to turn beliefs, values and aspirations into practice: there’s a gap between what we want to do and what actually happens.
For more than twenty years, we have been working in dialogue with Reggio Emilia, in encouraging and demonstrating how to close the gap.


This day introduces the theory and practice of Reggio Emilia’s preschools, for those who are inspired to create educational contexts fit for children's curiosity and meaning- making.


During this day, we will consider:

  • Core tenets of Reggio Emilia’s Approach
  • Experiences of UK settings who have re-framed their practice
  • Issues and possibilities for transforming your educational practice.

Reggio Emilia is a small city in northern Italy. After the second world war citizens of Reggio began to construct their own preschools and educational approach for young children.

The schools were built on the premise to teach children to think for themselves and with an image of the child as rich in potential, strong, powerful and competent. The schools embraced creativity, listening to children, community involvement, democratic citizenship, professional dialogue and documentation of learning processes. There are now 78 municipal preschools and infant toddler centres in Reggio Emilia, and their approach is an inspiration to educators around the world.
