Reggio Emilia

What is the Reggio Emilia approach?Loris Malaguzzi developed this approach after War World II for the young children, infant to preschool, in the community to learn in a community centered program. The philosophy encompasses the image of a child and their ability to ability to foster their own potential development through their own rights and close relationships they share with their community and their environment. The approach views art as a language of children to foster and express their ideas.

ELL Students:English Language Learners would strive momentously in a Reggio Emilia approached curriculum. The motto of “100 Languages” of Reggio represents the equally of all forms of language, including oral and visual, are important aspects of a young child’s development. ELL students will be emerged in their own learning based on their interest and foster their own growth and development through the manipulation of hands on materials.

Educators Role:The educators’ role in the Reggio approach stems from scaffolding the students ideas and creativity. They work together with the children and the atelierista to create, explore, and develop plans for projects based on the students’ interest. The educator provides documentation of the leaning process through pictures and objective observational notes that are displayed throughout the learning environment.
