Reggio Study Group

We are very happy to announce that our next Reggio Study Group with meet on APRIL 26, 2018 (THURSDAY) at EXPRESSIVE BEGINNINGS CHILD CARE in Henreitta at 6:30 PM.

Since we are celebrating the Month of the Young Child throughout April, we could like this Study Group to be inspired by those in Reggio Emilia as we share our Image of the Child.

As Loris Malaguzzi has said in his article Your Image of the Child: Where Teaching Begins, “What we have to do is draw out the image of the child, children have a right to a good school- a good building, good teachers, right time, good activities. Children have a right to imagine; It’s necessary that we believe that the child is very intelligent …. we need to give them the recognition of their rights and of their strengths.”

We will explore The Hundred Languages of Children!

We are looking forward to an exciting and meaningful study group on the 26th of April. As always we will have delicious refreshments!

Study Group April 26, at 6:30 PM at:
Expressive Beginnings Child Care in Henrietta
875 Commons Way
Rochester, NY 14623
