The Amiable School

Loris Malaguzzi maintains that the goal of schools in the Reggio Emilia project is:

to create an amiable school…where children, teachers and families, feel a sense of well-being; … to bring together the three central protagonists – children, teachers, and parents – and to intensify the interrelationships among them.

At the last Early Childhood Network meeting, we explored what constitutes an amiable learning environment which is ready for and welcomes children. We considered how in doing that, we more effectively support children’s self-regulation and are better able to guide their behaviour. Check out the resources here:
