Thanks to all of you! All the places available for the first Reggio Children’s International Digital Study Group are sold out.

We are planning a second one in June. If you wish, join our community to keep in touch with us and to be informed about the start of registration



Have you always wanted to come to Reggio Emilia and understand more of the Reggio Emilia Approach® but could never make it? Now's your chance!
Reggio Children is holding its first International Digital Study Group from 16-23 April 2021, with 20 hours of live events and recorded materials for a full immersion in the Reggio Emilia Approach®.

The Zoom platform will be our virtual "piazza" for exchange and dialogue on the themes of education. It is especially important in these difficult times not to give up sharing our different points of view, even at a distance.

During your time in the study group you will be in contact with several different professional profiles: pedagogistas, atelieristas, and teachers in Reggio Emilia's infant-toddler centres and preschools.

Materials will be available to participants enabling deeper knowledge of Reggio Emilia Municipality's educational project. And thanks to our documentations you will see what Reggio Emilia is attempting to do in these times of pandemic.

You will virtually enter into infant-toddler centres and preschools and see for yourself the educational services where the Reggio Emilia Approach is renewed each day.

Materials will be available for the entirety of the digital study group and longer so that you can organise time to your best advantage.

We will also be holding live conversations where you will be able to share thoughts, questions and reflections.  

A grand collective and choral exercise of imagination.

A unique opportunity for those of you who have never visited Reggio Emilia, and those who would love to return.
