A dynamic forum for collaborative inquiry, exchange and advocacy focusing on the experience of childhood and the process of learning.

The Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota draws inspiration from the Infant-Toddler Centers and Preschools of the city of Reggio Emilia, Italy, recognized internationally as the finest in the world.

Reggio-inspired educators see children, parents, teachers and community members as competent thinkers and meaning-makers. They recognize children's powers of initiative and resourcefulness and make room for them to pursue their ideas. They view children as "protagonists" of their own learning, as naturally curious and capable of pursuing what they want and need to find out about the world. They recognize the rights of children to have a safe, beautiful, responsive and challenging context in which to learn.

The philosophy and practices of the municipal schools of Reggio Emilia have implications far beyond the education of the young child. They also speak to the nature of learning and teaching, of participation as a democratic value, and of the importance of calling upon diverse perspectives and varied media to deepen understanding. As such, there are implications for all citizens, across many disciplines and contexts.

Our Mission: The Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota is a dynamic forum for collaborative inquiry, exchange and advocacy focusing on the experience of childhood and the process of learning.

This is what we do:

• Make visible the competence of children
• Collaborate with diverse groups to study learning
• Convene community dialogue to explore Reggio-inspired principles and practices

We are now in our 6th year as an independent nonprofit. The Network continues to grow in its participants and offerings. This year we:

  • Expanded our series of workshops now woven around a theme based on The Hundred Languages of Children.
  • Established a scholarship for participation in workshops.
  • Purchased a full set of Reggio publications for donation to the Deborah Fish Library, which gives accessibility throughout Minnesota.
  • Sponsored dialogue groups, book discussions, and public forums to explore Reggio-inspired ideas and deepen practices.
  • Produced quarterly newsletters.
  • Hosted an annual conference with nationally known speakers.
  • Continued to build organizational infrastructure to support growing activities.
  • We are excited to launch a new civic engagement initiative during the 2014-15 year.
