The Advent School welcomes educators to engage in conversation with our faculty about best practices in the classroom. Visitors tour, observe, and learn with Advent faculty about the educational theories that support the Reggio Emilia Approach during this day-long collaborative conference.
Past keynote presenters include Dr. Lella Gandini, U.S. Liaison for the Dissemination of the Reggio Emilia Approach, and Dr. Stephanie Cox Suarez, Associate Professor and Founder of the Wheelock College Documentation Studio.
School Visits to Advent
We invite educators from all disciplines and grade levels who are interested in learning more about the Reggio Emilia Approach to plan a visit to our school between December and May to engage in an interactive program with our teachers. We have welcomed teachers from around the United States, as well as delegations from Australia, China, Colombia, Haiti, Iceland, Israel, Singapore and Taiwan. Typically, visits will include in-class observations, school tour, and opportunity for questions about incorporating the Reggio-inspired philosophy into classroom practice.
