ECA have curated a collection of resources to enable early childhood educators to support their thinking about the principles of the educational project of Reggio Emilia. The collection includes virtual experiences of a variety of early learning settings from across Australia.
The collection includes:
Within the Australian context, it is not uncommon for a setting or organisation to categorise particular aesthetics as ‘being Reggio’. However, when delving deeper into what it means to draw inspiration from the principles of a particular theoretical approach, it’s important to consider the underpinnings of the principles rather than replicating or imitating what we see.
This collection seeks to showcase national practices of service interpretation of the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach, inspire deeper thinking and dialogue and support reflection on your current practices as you consider new ways of working with children.
Resources will continue to be added to the collection over the coming weeks and months.
