At PLC Sydney, the philosophy of Reggio Emilia forms the basis of the Program for the four year old Pre-Kindergarten class.
This philosophy of early childhood teaching originated in the northern Italian city of Reggio Emilia in the 1940s. It is widely renowned across Europe, the USA and here in Australia.
It offers educators of young children a deeper perspective of ‘best teaching practice’, based on the belief that children learn through interaction with others, including parents, staff, peers and the environment.
Central to this philosophy is the belief in the capabilities and true potential of children.
