REACH - Singapore 2013


Encountering Reggio Emilia: Values, Experiences and Identities

Following the launch of REACH as a member of the Reggio Children International Network on the Thursday evening of the conference, Dr. Giamminuti prompted reflection on the consideration of ‘beauty’ as an aspect of environments as research spaces for young children.

Delegates also reflected on the significance of pedagogical documentation as a democratic space for collaborating with children and families and reconsidered children’s rights through the lens of inclusion and special rights children. Through documentation, we become in greater ‘synch’ with the children….walking their journey said Dr Giamminuti.

The conference content invited participants to explore their personal value and belief systems (about children and teaching and learning) in order to better connect and give meaning to their practice.

Delegates enjoyed visits to four EtonHouse Preschools on the Saturday of the conference to understand how EtonHouse teachers are attempting to make reference to the Educational Project of Reggio Emilia in their own classrooms. These visits serve as reflection points for conference delegates, so that they can begin to see the relationship between conference content (theory) and classroom design and curriculum development (practice).

REACH would like to sincerely thank all Singapore Preschool Directors for their support and collaboration as part of the organisation of this conference.

Other Upcoming Events

For the first time ever, the Reggio Emilia Mosaic of Marks Exhibition will be coming to Singapore in November 2024. Explore the captivating research on children’s mark-making and drawing woven with narrative from Reggio Emilia’s infant-toddler centres and preschools, presented in English and Mandarin. Alongside the exhibition, REACH will also offer a conference on the 22nd and 23rd of November.
The Mosaic of Marks exhibition atelier has travelled worldwide and is debuting in Singapore in November 2024! The uniqueness of this exhibition stems from the fact that it offers educators a rare glimpse into the work done in the pre-schools and infant toddlers centres of Reggio Emilia. It is an opportunity to connect theory and practice and bring these inspirations to your context.
Join the REACH study programmes in Singapore where you will learn from experienced educators in a learning environment inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach.
