Questions from the Community

Susan and I have been asking members of our school community what they would like to know from our Reggio visit. Here are a few questions:

*What is the length of day, week, year of school in Reggio? What is the flow of their day and maximum age of the children? What are class sizes and group sizes?

*What type of education system exists in Italy after preschool?

*How do teachers balance the goals of a child-centered project approach while making sure the children get the exposure they need to materials and other concepts so they are ready for kindergarten?

*How do teachers communicate their project decisions to the parents?

*What is the approach to dealing with sibling rivalry?

*How do you do project work with the youngest children? (How can we do project work with 2 and 1/2 year olds, 2 days a week?)

*In what ways do they involve, include and communicate with parents?

*What do the Italians value about school?
