Main features of Reggio Emilia preschools

Preschool questions (read our in-depth answers)

Answers to the question “What is a Reggio Emilia preschool?” from school officials

Reggio Emilia values the child as strong, capable and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge. It is a project-based program, and the lessons are based on the interests of children.” Marcel Pereira, director of Century Private School, a Montessori school in Richmond Hill, Ontario

“We believe that the best approach for children is the Reggio Emilia-inspired program. Students learn through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. The environment should also be organic, tranquil, and aesthetically pleasing.” Vanessa Sjerven, teacher at Elmwood School (the early years program), in Ottawa, Ontario
