Reggio Emilia

What is the Reggio Emilia Educational Approach?

The History

Originated in the town of Reggio Emilia, Italy after World War II. The town was devastated after the war. The citizens wanted to teach their children to think on their own so they would not fall victim to following another corrupt leader like Mussolini. As they didn’t have money to build new schools, they taught their children with everyday items and items from nature. The first Reggio Emilia center opened in 1963.
