The Reggio Emilia Approach to Learning

Founded by Loris Malaguzzi (1920-1994) in the city of Reggio Emilia, northern Italy, the Reggio Emilia approach was developed for municipal child-care and education programmes, assisting children below six years of age. The approach involves children to be seen as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative and inventive learners. Children learn and develop through an intrinsic desire to play, explore, create, interact and communicate. The Reggio Approach is a multifaceted method that respects and puts into practice many of the fundamental aspects of the works of theorists such as, Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky and many others. It is an approach that lends itself to the collaboration among children, teachers and parents and the co-construction of knowledge, social learning and the role of society.

The parent’s role is considered to be an essential one. Our educators see parents as being an active partner in their child’s learning and development. The vision of the child as a competent learner demands that educators are aware of the children’s interests and questions when creating the environment and facilitate challenging and stimulating learning and development experiences.
