Reggio Emilia Learning

For the third year, we are glad to be working with the NC REGGIO EMILIA COLLABORATIVE. They are hosting a series of sessions examining how to implement the key principles of the Reggio approach to early childhood learning in North Carolina. The NC Reggio Emilia Collaborative reflects the importance of a shared vision for education as well as creates energy, conversation, and action around how we as a community wish to cultivate the strong potential of all children.

 

Durham PreK
CCSA is also sponsoring a learning thread for Durham PreK educators at the ASK Conference. These workshops are designed to support high quality teaching and learning for public classrooms for 4-year-old children.
