An Extraordinary Learning Journey

Susan and I will participate in the First International Summer School in Reggio Emilia, Italy from July 4 – 16, 2010. This experience will provide us a deeper understanding of the Reggio Emilia approach, and we intend to share and infuse this learning within the entire BHCP community upon our return.

While we are in Reggio Emilia, Susan and I plan to post our thoughts, reflections and many pictures from our experience here. We hope that you will be in Reggio Emilia with us through this communication vehicle.

Our participation in the First International Summer School is made possible by the generous support of the BHCP Board of Directors, who helped fund my attendance to include tuition, books as well as a significant portion of my travel expenses. Susan and I are also making personal contributions toward this professional development opportunity. We intend to work very hard to ensure that the rewards of this investment will be felt in our entire community as we continue our work to enhance the partnership among children, families and educators here for many years to come.

We invite you to post your questions and curiosities about the Reggio Emilia approach so we may seek the information in which you are interested while we are there.
