Study tours

Each year, AREA takes interested people to the city of Reggio Emilia in Italy. These study groups give participants the opportunity to visit the municipal schools and infant-toddler centres in Reggio Emilia, to meet like-minded educators from around the world, and to hear from teachers, pedagogistas, atelieristas, administrators and parents from Reggio Emilia. Topics of discussion and presentation include:

  • The background and history of the Reggio Emilia educational project
  • The hundred languages of children
  • Observation, interpretation and documentation
  • Children as citizens with rights
  • The school as a system of interactions and relationships
  • The environment and the educational space
  • Parents’ involvement in the life of the school
