The Reggio Emilia approach is similar to Montessori in that it empowers children to succeed on their own terms in student-led classrooms, encouraging interaction with peers.
It is a collaborative approach among the students, their families, and teachers. This progressive educational method respects children’s individual voices and the unique ways they express themselves.
Founded by Loris Malaguzzi, the Reggio Emilia approach is based on the theory that children communicate in many ways, like writing, art, or singing.
Children share their discoveries and ideas with one another through painting, sculpting, music, storytelling, theater, and many other forms of expression. By embracing this approach in our schools, we are empowering children to raise their voices and use their talents with confidence.
