Reggio Children’s International Study Groups
More than 200 study groups with participants from over 107 different Countries (totalling almost 4000 every year) have been organized.
Last year the International Study Group witnessed the participation of 360 people, from more than 25 different countries.
The International Study groups aim to provide a deeper knowledge of the Reggio Approach, through direct experience, strongly connected with the Infant Toddler Centres and Preschools of Reggio Emilia.
The diversified composition of the different Study Groups, provides a huge resource, from which to facilitate dialogue, the exchange of experiences and sharing between the participants, hailing from different countries and contexts.
