REGGIO Approach

From its beginnings, the Co-op has naturally embodied aspects of the Reggio Emilia approach: cooperation, parent involvement, and deep respect for children. After discovering the philosophy of the Reggio schools, and recognizing the similarities in our own cooperative school, further learning and study of the Reggio Approach has informed the Co-op in its daily experiences and its dedicated studio space.
