About The Reggio Magnet School, Avon, CT
This was my first time being introduced to The Reggio Magnet School of Avon, CT. The Reggio school embraces an educational approach exported from the villages of Reggio Emilia Italy in the 1940s that has gained popularity all over the world, serving as a model for innovative learning systems. The Reggio approach which shares some of the beliefs in how children learn from noted schools such as Waldorf and Montessori is different in it's interpretation and execution of "core values".
The Importance Of The Child's Environment
According to the Reggio Magnet School website:
At Reggio Magnet School children from Pre K to Grade 5 learn through their experiences including touching, moving, listening, seeing, hearing, and working with other children. The school itself plays a role in learning providing an environment that transforms, educates an d inspires the viewer".
