The Reggio approach



The Reggio Emilia approach

The Reggio Emilia approach to early years education is based upon the premise that all children have an incredible curiosity which makes them search for the reasons for everything. * Central to the Reggio pedagogy is the child who is competent in building relationships; the child who holds his own values; the child who is respected and valued for himself as well as holding a respect for others, the child who embodies a curiosity and open-mindedness about all that is possible.

* The environment is a key component of the Reggio philosophy and is spoken of as 'the third teacher'. This is reflected in school layout and design, which emphasise the creative use of space and light.
