Nurseries or preschools follow different approaches. One of these approaches is called Reggio Emilia. The Reggio Emilia approach is an educational philosophy which is student-centred, self-directed, experiential and relationship-driven.
Reggio Emilia nurseries value respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery through a self-guided curriculum. This approach aims to teach children how to use these symbolic languages such as painting, sculpting, and drama.
It is based on the following principles:
- Children must have some control over the direction of their learning
- Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing
- Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that they must be allowed to explore
- Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves
Psychologist Loris Malaguzzi and parents developed this approach after the Second World War. It derived its name from the founder’s hometown, Reggio Emilia, Italy.
