What to look for in a Reggio inspired Head Start classroom


Across the United States, there are an increasing number of Reggio inspired Head Start programs. Inspired by an approach to early childhood first developed in the Reggio Emilia region of Italy in 1947, each Reggio inspired program holds itself accountable for developing a unique approach adapted to the children in the classroom, their families, and their community context. The approach blends structure, routine, and teacher-directed learning with wonder-filled, curiosity-driven, child-led emergent curriculum. (author abstract)
