‘Not just anyplace’ is an introduction to the key principles that underpin the teaching and learning approaches of the educators of Reggio Emilia.
 
As we begin any journey, we start with trying to gain a sense of the place we are entering.  This day will begin with an introduction to the cultural and historical story of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and will include discussion surrounding how educators in New Zealand can translate some of these ideas into their own cultural contexts. 

After morning tea there will be an opportunity to view the learning spaces at  Bear Park and speak to the teaching team in each area. 

After the visit, teachers will have a choice of two presentations of projects that have happened in an Infant and Toddler centre and a Preschool centre.
