Early Childhood Education - Educational Experience
Arising from the ashes of World War II, it was a small group of women who broke with the traditionally dominant Catholic school system in Italy, to form their own preschool. This model preschool came to be known as Reggio Emilia approach. Significantly, it was the first Italian secular school for young children. In 1991, an American newspaper stated that the Reggio Emilia preschool was one of the top ten schools in the world.
Resources at Exceed Early Education and Care are vast and varied and play an integral part in children’s learning and development. As a new service who were assisted by Educational Experience in their resource selection process, we wanted to find out how these resources are now being used by educators and children.
Educational Experience recently had the pleasure of visiting Exceed Early Education and Care. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend some time speaking with one of the service directors Katrina Baines about their experience with our new centre team.
