Our Story

 

Our organization connects and supports educators through the dissemination of information, resources, consulting, coaching, professional development, elearning, and more. Though we have extensive experience with the study of the Reggio Emilia Approach, this is not our sole focus. We support social constructivist learning and embrace all philosophies that exemplify this approach. We draw from the philosophies of Dewey, Freire, Hawkins, and Malaguzzi and look to contemporaries that exemplify these philosophers. 

Our consultants, coaches, and instructors have been working in this field for many years as family child care providers, teachers, administrators, professors, coaches, and consultants. Together they have coordinated more than 20 Study Tours to Reggio Emilia and supported more than 300 participants.

All our consultants and coaches have different areas of expertise, so we can help you figure out what suits your needs best. For more information about our consultants, and coaches please contact us. To find our more about our eLearning instructors go to the eLearning pages.
