Lesley offers you many learning opportunities inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education.
The Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education was created after World War II in the small Italian city of Reggio Emilia. It focuses on fostering relationships among, children, teachers, parents, and community, and builds on the premise that each child has the desire to connect with others, to engage in learning, and to enter into a relationship with his or her environment. An integral part of the approach is hands-and-minds-on exploration of materials and media.
Lesley University offers workshops, courses, an institute, and a study tour each year, all of which focus on teaching participants Reggio Emilia methods.
