Our Reggio Emilia-Inspired Classroom Transformation 

Bond Lake Public School

My deepest gratitude to all of those who attended this afternoon's session around the Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Childhood Education.  I sincerely enjoyed watching you participate enthusiastically in our collaborative art piece.  Please find below some documentation of the time we shared together.  Your interpretations of leaves were all unique and beautiful in their own way!

Remember the wise words from the resource Inspiring Spaces for Young Children:

Be patient. Growth takes time.

Start small. Focus on one improvement at a time.

Change what you can.  Know some ideas may be outside your ability to take on.

“Children are miracles...we must make it our job to create, with reverence and gratitude, a space that is worthy of a miracle.”

    1. Hi Colleen,

      I can ask the educators at Richland Academy the next time that I see them.
