Philosophy

  • REIEA (Reggio Emilia Information Exchange in Australia)
  • Democracy
  • Community

Our philosophy is aligned with the following vision statement for REIEA:

“We believe in a just and civil society that values our shared humanity, fosters strong democratic communities, recognises the uniqueness of each individual and appreciates diversity.

We recognise children as social beings from birth, full of curiosity and imagination, and having the potential and desire to find connections and meaning in all they experience. We acknowledge their ability to reflect upon and contribute to their learning through their many languages of expression and communication.

We recognise that all children have a right to be heard, to be respected and to feel a sense of belonging to their family, school and community. We see this as a foundation to becoming responsible citizens of the world.”
