Anybody interested in learning more about the Reggio Emilia philosophy

Subject areas

Early learning

The Reggio Emilia philosophy, born in Italy, sees children as strong, capable and able to contribute ideas and thinking to projects that capture their interest and imagination from an early age.


Parents are seen as integral to the school community and form part of a triangle between children, teachers and the learning environment.


Independent Schools Victoria works with schools on Reggio Emilia-based projects through a thinker in residence program.


The Reimagining Children, Spaces and Relationships Exhibition will showcase the work nine schools have done to involve children more in their own learning.


Visitors will see each school’s narrative in words, images and digital displays, including voice recordings, videos and photos galleries.


Guides from Independent Schools Victoria and Reggio Emilia Australian Information Exchange will be available to answer questions about the school projects, the exhibited material, and the philosophy itself.
