Here at Kids Cottage Nursery School in Dubai, our Reggio Emilia trained practitioners are keen observers, documenters, and partners in the learning process thus enabling children to ask their own questions and generate and test their own hypotheses, explore and generate many possibilities, both affirming and contradictory.

At Kids Cottage Nursery School in Dubai, we document the children’s learning journey through photographs and descriptions of activities and potential learning outcomes.

Importance of Documentation

Documentation is a key element in the Reggio Approach. Documentation serves many purposes, but most of all is used as a research tool for studying children’s learning processes.

Documentation is about what children are doing, learning and grasping, and the product of documentation is a reflection of interactions between our Reggio teachers and children and among children.

Documentation provides a growing theory for daily improvement of practice.
