We wish to invite you to join a wide-reaching organization in Ontario that brings together those interested in studying and working with the inspiration of the Reggio Emilia approach.

We would love to have you join us and can promise an interesting and creative context for further professional development. Our intention is that the organization provide a forum for all sectors involved with young children, from child care, preschool, public and private schools to postsecondary institutions, from teachers to administrators to legislators and policy makers.

Our sense is that the organization will provide occasions for joining others who wish to continue their exploration and engagement with the Reggio Emilia approach.
