Reggio Emilia Approach in Nido Early Schools
The Reggio Emilia Approach was developed in Italy post World War II and is at the forefront of early childhood education. It is a constantly evolving approach that bears influences from Montessori, Piaget, Vygotsky and American theorists such as Bruner and Gardner. It focuses on elements that educators know make sense.
The Reggio Emilia Approach derives its name from its birthplace and began as a vision by the local community and a teacher named Loris Malaguzzi as a means of rebuilding a community after the devastating effects of World War II. It was an approach that saw the importance of cultivating young minds today as investments for the future and it has gained worldwide recognition as best practice for its unique vision of early childhood education as an extension of natural curiosity.
It fosters the belief that the child, parent, community and natural environment are all essential to the learning process. Reggio Emilia has strong roots within nature and focuses on a learning environment enriched with creative and sensory experiences as avenues for growth allowing every child to reach their true potential.
The Reggio Emilia Approach has been adopted in countless cities throughout the world from New York to London and will provide the very best learning experiences for your child here in Australia.
We proudly use a world-class Reggio Emilia approach in our Perth and Melbourne-based centres. At all Nido Early Schools the Reggio Emilia Approach is combined with the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standards to provide the very best standard of education and child care.
