Learn, Play, Imagine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Imagine a day when children in all kindergarten classrooms will be given the freedom to actively explore, create and invent new things, to completely focus and engage with their own topics of interest in a place where resources are made fully available to them. We would like to spend some time with you sharing our vision of a play based, Reggio Emilia approach in a multi-aged, team teaching setting. Let's talk about the process we went through to get where we are today and take you through selected projects inspired by our students while revealing our challenges as well as successes along the way.
