Welcome to the Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota, a broad gathering of educators and citizens from Minnesota and nearby regions, who work in a variety of schools and civic organizations around issues of education and democracy. Inspired by the innovative preschools and infant-toddler centers in Reggio Emilia, Italy, Network participants look closely at the “Reggio approach” as well as examine and discuss our local experiences.  Here you will find information, inspiration and resources.

“The teacher’s job is to engage in a “relational creativity” with the child that both revels in the child’s creativity and stimulates the teacher’s own creativity to find ways to help the child observe, analyze, interpret and build theories.”
- Carlina Rinaldi
