Reggio Emilia

Education students are able to explore the philosophy of the early childhood schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, which emphasizes the "culture of childhood" and the images and potentials of the young child within that culture. Through college course work, as well as travel to the town of Reggio Emilia, students learn how to facilitate learning experiences that encourage young children to wonder, to investigate and to construct knowledge.
