It is with pleasure that the R.E. Provocations committee invite you to join us in November 2022, on a Study Tour to Reggio Emilia, Italy. 

As a member of the International Network of Reggio Children we are organising a delegation from New Zealand to visit Italy and see first-hand the Reggio Philosophy and Educational Approach to teaching and learning within their Preschools and Infant Toddler Centres.

Your week in Reggio Emilia is truly a wonderful experience, with participants arriving with a host of questions and often leaving with many more. We have been taking these study tours since 1995 and there has always been an element of surprise as the week unfolds. 

You will visit the town of Reggio Emilia, engage with presentations from pedagogistas, atelieristas, and teachers who work at the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre as well as in Reggio Emilia's Infant-toddler Centres and Preschools. They will provoke your thinking and challenge your practice, we will visit an Infant and Toddler centre and be immersed in a Preschool for a morning. We also visit the REMIDA Centre which is full of recycled resources as well as the Loris Malaguzzi School.

Reggio Children are very open and willing to share their journey. There is always something to be discovered, something to challenge your thinking, something to be emotional about, as you weave your way through the week of encounters, provocations and dialogues. 

Testimonial from a past participant
"What an adventure! From the first point of contact to after the conference there was ample communication and support. R E Provocations provided the opportunity for our whole contingent to meet together, learn about Reggio Emilia and what the week of the conference might be like. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and caring, making the effort to give us the best experience possible. What I enjoyed most about going with REP was that our leader organised restaurants for us so that we could dine as a group if we wanted (most nights we did) yet we had the option to do our own thing in free time. There was a sense of community as we met to discuss things we learnt and to find ways of applying those ideas in practice. All in all a great company to go with and experience all that Reggio Emilia has to offer. Would highly recommend!"
