At home with the Reggio Approach

#Istayathome has become a daily way of life for all of us, children, parents, teachers, and educators. We are living in difficult times, and precisely because of these difficulties we want to continue being a community.

Each day Reggio Children and the Preschools and Infant-toddler Centres – Istituzione of Reggio Emilia Municipality, are continuing to develop ideas and initiatives, for us to stay together, play together, and make school together.

RC 2020 Social Filastrocche ENG2 


This project was launched for the 2020 Night of Tales to collect nursery rhymes in different languages and create a Golden Record, like the ones carried on the Voyager spacecrafts. The collection can be heard on and one day it will be able to voyage between heaven and earth.

The project continues with a new and extended collection of nursery rhymes that we are inviting children to contribute.
