Lesley offers 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.
In this one-day workshop, participants will become familiar with the principles and practices of the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education. Participants will spend time in a Reggio Inspired classroom, listen to a presentation, and discuss the approach. This workshop will highlight how the principles and practices are implemented in a preschool and kindergarten classroom, the teacher workspace, and the school environment. This workshop is ideal for early childhood educators who are new to the Reggio Emilia Approach.
