					INTRODUCTION TO REGGIO’S APPROACH … & ENCOUNTERS with UK educator/arts-enabler collaborative projects
‘The cornerstone of our experience, based on practice, theory, and research, is the image of the children as rich, strong, and powerful. The emphasis is placed on seeing the children as unique subjects with rights rather than simply needs.’ Carla Rinaldi, consultant, Reggio Preschools
