The Reggio Emilia Approach to Education

Digital Study Group - Students and Professors


Have you always wanted to come to Reggio Emilia and know more about the Reggio Emilia Approach® but never been able?

Well now, from March 18 to March 24, you can participate in Reggio Children's Digital Study Group dedicated to students and professors mainly from North America.

It's a full immersion in the Reggio Emilia Approach® with live conversations and recorded materials.

Look at the programme!


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.
