Reggio Emilia Approach

In the Reggio Emilia Approach, children are viewed as capable of acquiring knowledge through their natural curiosity and creativity, providing hands-on discovery learning that allows the child to use all their senses.

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational philosophy based on the image of a child with strong potentialities for development and a subject with rights, who learns through the hundred languages belonging to all human beings, and grows in relations with others.

The Reggio Emilia philosophy is based upon the following set of principles:

  • Children must have some say over what they learn; additionally, the senses play a big role in the learning process.
  • Children engage with their senses to help them learn and fully process something.
  • Children are encouraged to interact with other children and explore the world through material items and relationships.
  • Children should be encouraged to always express themselves and be given infinite means and opportunities to do so.

Reggio Emilia Approach Fundamentals:

The Reggio Emilia Approach has parents, educators, and the environment as pillars. Where parents act as partners & collaborators, the role of the educators is more like a co-learner. At GGN we encourage educators to plan activities and lessons to smoothen in child’s learning.

The environment is crucial for the this approach, GGN has designed with spacious indoor and awash natural light, with access to outdoor to each class GGN has supported ATELIER where the environment serves as the third teacher. 

Children are considered to have the need and right to communicate and interact with others. And GGN with this approach encourages children to do just that!
