Early learning

Independent Schools Victoria and the Reggio Emilia Australia Information Exchange have partnered to bring you a trio of events to learn more about the internationally-renowned Reggio Emilia Schools from northern Italy.


In 1991, Newsweek named the Reggio Emilia Schools as the most internationally influential and important organisation in early years education.


The Reggio Emilia educational project has continued to grow its influence across the globe. Since 1994, many Victorian schools have been influenced by the philosophy.


This one-day conference is a unique opportunity to spend time with two expert speakers from the Reggio Emilia educational project – Filippo Chiele, Atelierista, and Paola Strozzi, Pedagogista. Join them in unpacking the concept of progettazione – a more global and flexible approach in designing a curriculum.


The conference will explore:


  • a strategy of thought and action that is respectful of children’s questions and inquiries into the world around them
  • how we listen and give value to children and adults’ opinions and perspectives
  • how we enable children to participate in the meaning-making process and construction of knowledge
  • how we support learning as research, planning together with imaginative implementation of investigations.


Dr Stefania Giamminuti, eminent scholar and author, will be the translator for the event.
