At home with the Reggio Approach
#Istayathome has become a daily way of life for all of us, children, parents, teachers, and educators. We are living in difficult times, and precisely because of these difficulties we want to continue being a community.
Each day Reggio Children and the Preschools and Infant-toddler Centres – Istituzione of Reggio Emilia Municipality, are continuing to develop ideas and initiatives, for us to stay together, play together, and make school together.
