Children actively participate in learning
The children independently suggest and create interactions with their surroundings. Therefore, the educational environment must support children to pursue their interests, under the direction of an experienced instructor. For example, when the child is enthusiastically enjoying the construction game, the instructor will add to the game colorful wooden bars with diverse designs and materials to stimulate the creatives and develop children's existing ideas. It is an ingenious way that teachers add into the game so children can formulate timing skills, problem solving by themselves.
Environment plays a very important role
Early education by Reggio Emilia philosophy consider environment as important factors after the role of teachers and parents. The pre-school centers or kindergartens that train children in this way all have a studio, or simply called the manufacturing factory, which contains all kinds of materials such as clay, color, pencil, pens, drawing boards, stickers, ect. These variety of tools will serve children's creative design ideas.
The teacher - parent - child relationship is a cooperative relationship in the learning process.
Many current early education methods for preschool children often ignore the role of parents, often focusing on teachers and children. Reggio Emilia sees parents as a very important factor for children's learning. Therefore, the Reggio Emilia training schools regularly organize events for both parents and students such as lectures, seminars to share useful advice from experts or parents on how to raise children.
Create favorable conditions for children to get closer to creative arts
Children's learning needs to be built visually and vividly. According to this Reggio Emilia philosophy, young instructors will need to apply technological techniques in the learning process such as filming, taking photos, writing diaries regularly and saving the children's own products.
Give children practical experience based on creativity
Educating children according to the Reggio Emilia philosophy is a challenge for teachers and parents, but the value it brings is enormous. The training of preschool children by this method will maximize the deep learning for children, raise awareness about the world and helping them develop more comprehensively.
