REGGIO-INSPIRED LEARNING CENTRE
services at the learning centre
At Frog Hollow Reggio-Inspired Learning Centre, we believe that the best way of learning is a highly individual approach; inspired by the philosophies and methods of the Reggio-Emilia approach, we frame our learning strategy in the following way:
Holding a curious mind and a rich image of the child is a practice that comes with understanding of the self and others and requires ongoing collaboration and reflection with colleagues and families. We believe that seeing children and educators in action can be a very positive learning experience for teachers who are exploring the Reggio Emilia approach.
See the “Observe” tab below for more information.
We offer a wide range of public and customized services to provide opportunities for our visitors to learn about the Reggio Emilia approach and to reflect on the information they have received. Every educator and every program is unique and the process of reflection is essential to prepare and bring back information for your own programs.
See the “Reflect” tab below for more information.
Collaboration is our key to a better world. At Frog Hollow Reggio-Inspired Learning Centre, reaching out to other inspired educators and programs allows us to share ideas and thoughts.
See the “Discuss” tab below for more information.
