Fundamental Values of the Reggio Emilia Approach

Time: 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. (Classroom visits begin at 5:30 p.m.)
Location: The Advent School, 15 Brimmer St. Boston, MA, 02108

During this day-long introductory workshop, you’ll spend time in a Reggio-inspired school, learn about the fundamental values and practices of the Reggio Emilia Approach, and engage in a material exploration. This workshop will highlight the basic principles and practices of the schools in Reggio Emilia. Examples of emergent investigations with children in a U.S. context will demonstrate how one can draw inspiration from the schools in Reggio Emilia. There will also be time to explore the environment in Reggio-inpsired classrooms. This workshop is ideal for educators who are new to the Reggio Emilia Approach.
