Overview

Have you ever wondered what the Reggio Approach is all about, why it works, and how it can be used to benefit the young children in your setting?

This book provides an accessible introduction to the values and principles underlying the Reggio Approach to early years care and education. It demonstrates how practitioners in the United Kingdom have drawn inspiration from the Reggio Approach and developed their own practice in order to provide high quality experiences for young children.

This new edition has been fully updated to show the connections between the Reggio Approach and the principles and commitments of the EYFS framework. Each chapter focuses on one important aspect of the Reggio Approach and includes:

  • practical examples involving children of different ages in a wide variety of settings, helping the reader to see the connection between practice and theory
  • questions to enable the reader to reflect on and develop his or her own practice
  • references to sources of further reading and information.
