Children learn in their early years more than any other time in their lives.

Their personality takes shape and begins to lay foundation of knowledge. Early child development sets the foundation for life long learning behaviour and health.

Reggio Emilia is a pedagogy described as student-centered and constructivist that utilizes self-directed, experiential learning in relationship-driven environments.
The program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery through a self-guided curriculum.
At its core is an assumption that children form their own personality during early years of development and are endowed with “a hundred languages”, through which they can express their ideas.
The aim of the Reggio approach is to teach how to use these symbolic languages in everyday life.
It was developed after World War II by psychologist Loris Malaguzzi and parents in the villages around Reggio Emilia, Italy, and derives its name from the city.
Reggio Emilia Approach
The Hundred Languages of Children
“Children use their “hundred languages” to work through experiences and projects. These languages are symbolic and include drawing, sculpting, dramatic play, writing, and painting etc. They are used to represent children’s thinking and theories around a topic or an encounter with a learning experience. While children work through problems and ideas, they are encouraged to illustrate their understanding using many different languages.
There are five partners in the journey of learning; teachers, peers, the environment, families and the community.
It is the master; the living space that will inspire the children to navigate through their thinking, doing and being. It offers open ended materials, spaces to work collaboratively, loose parts, aesthetically engaging invitations and supports the voices of the children and teachers.”
