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.

These meetings bring together the community’s Reggio-inspired leaders to discuss broad subjects involved in the community. Most of these meetings have limited space and participants will be invited directly.

Parents and Families Gatherings:
Parents are the heart of the Reggio Emilia approach and we value their thoughts greatly. We welcome parents to join us in conversation meetings, where a wide range of subjects can be discussed openly.

For more information please contact Maryam at (604) 817-2491 or

While each of our individual services are valuable for your Reggio approach journey, we strongly recommend that you join us on a full-day learning journey where you can visit our centres, receive customized consultation, and engage in reflective dialogue all in one day.
