Making Art Together

Special Event - Amelia Gambetti & Lella Gandini: Early Childhood Education in Reggio Emilia

Since the Studio's approach is influenced by the philosophy of early childhood education in Reggio Emilia Italy, we're super excited to share that Amelia Gambetti and Lella Gandini are presenting at The Carle A Day in the Life of an Infant Toddler Center and a Day in a Preschool in Reggio Emilia on Friday, October 21, 2011 from 6:30 - 9:00 pm 

What does learning look like? After viewing videos which are part of the traveling exhibition, The Wonder of Learning The Hundred Languages of Children, participants will share reflections and discussion on the nature of learning.

Amelia Gambetti and Lella Gandini

Guided by these distinguished educators, the focus will be on relationships, inquiries, materials, and spaces and how they support the languages of learning. Before the program, there is an option to visit The Smith College Center for Early Childhood Education at Fort Hill. We hope to see you there!
