A dynamic forum focused on the experience of childhood and the process of learning


We envision a community that equips its people to invigorate democracy and expand the concept of learning through dialogue, reflection and collaborative work.


The Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota is a dynamic forum for collaborative inquiry, exchange and advocacy focusing on the experience of childhood and the process of learning.  As a community of educators, parents and citizens who share an interest in the philosophy of the municipal preschools and infant-toddler centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy, we affect the lives of children and their families by:
  • recognizing the inherent power, competence and rights of children,
  • supporting relationships,
  • drawing from our local cultures and contexts,
  • making Reggio-inspired work visible.


  1. Promote the integration of theory, practice and decision-making to support children and families
  2. Enrich the connections and communication among the community of learners, locally, nationally and internationally
  3. Raise the visibility of children and the work of the Network
  4. Grow the community of learners engaging in dialogue with Reggio philosophy and practice
  5. Build the resources necessary to support the mission and work of the Network
