Providing students with a productive and engaging indoor environment is a core ideal of Reggio Emilia pedagogy. Strong indoor classrooms offer school age participants with a safe way to ask questions, problem solve, and develop new learning skills. Join other school age professionals as we explore easy and effective methods to bring Reggio Emilia philosophy into the confines of the school age classroom.
