The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead

As Reggio Kids approaches its 14th birthday, I can't help but reflect on our remarkable journey.
We have seen hundreds of children grow through our schools, shared extraordinary learning stories, forged authentic relationships and embedded ourselves in the community.
We have helped to raise future generations.
What will their calling be; lawyer, doctor, scientist, business owner, engineer, artist, dancer...
 We know we have contributed in some small measure to their life journey.
Our commitment was not to fill their cups with facts but to support habits of mind that would remain with them forever.
We thank them all and bless them on their paths.

We will continue our work seeking to better our understanding of the world of childhood, remaining the place where they can tinker, discover, marvel and wonder!

What will the future bring Reggio Kids?
It is in the unknown that new discoveries are made!

We are currently in the process of designing a place where children can tinker, negotiate and invent with a vast collection of loose parts from all over the world!

Thank you to the educators who shared and continue to share our vision and in particular a heartfelt thank you to the three women who have been with us since the beginning, Rosa, Sabrina, and Mary-the best tinkerers of all!
Your contributions to our schools have been and continue to be immeasurable!
Each day brings new possibles, discoveries, discourse, and collaboration.


  1. It is hard to believe that it has been 14 years!! Every year brings us new families, children and experiences. We embrace them all with endless opportunities and marvel at the newness every child brings. We are so fortunate to be able to participate in the growth and development of our future citizens and our thankful to have been selected to be their teachers. Here's to many more!!!!!

  2. It has been an honor and privilege to be part of the Reggio Kids team for over eight year, being influenced by great colleagues, inspiring me to think on how to provide alternative learning opportunities for the children in my care. Learning from the children's tinkering to stand back, see and interpret their thinking: teaching me to look at learning in multiple languages. Every day provides extraordinary opportunities for myself as I watch and marvel at the uniqueness of the children and how they interact with all the materials around them. Not one of them can be called a toy. I am truly fortunate to meet so many wonderful children and families!
    Thank you Tiziana and Livia
