The Reggio Emilia Approach… The Hundred Languages

Bernadet Tijnagel-Schoenaker


A child has hundreds of possibilities to explore the world: drawing, making music, painting, clay modelling, dancing, constructing, crying, playing with shadows. Respect for the talents of the child and the way a child develops is a starting point of this approach and it is up to adults to offer a rich environment, opportunities and materials and to create situations that allow children to further develop these opportunities. Reggio Emilia pays attention to all the languages and supports them even when children grow up.
