What is the Reggio Emilia Approach?

The Reggio Emilia approach is a teaching philosophy that encourages children’s natural curiosity and learning through a playful, integrated, enriching environment. This approach fosters a unique reciprocal relationship between the teacher and the child, where children are active participants in their own learning.
