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.

Membership benefits include:

  • annual or semi-annual conferences including Reggio educators

  • professional development Saturday sessions in which small groups share documentation and discussion

  • website access and information

  • networking for members

  • announcements for various events through the website

Select your membership type:

  • One Year Individual Student Membership
    Proof of enrolment is required, as a student you have all the same benefits as a full member at a much lower cost.
  • One Year Membership with CAYC Discount
    Subscribers of the Canadian Association for Young Children (CAYC) receive a discount on ORA membership. Proof of subscription is required.
  • One Year Membership
    The standard yearly membership.
  • Multiple Users – Organization Membership
    An organization can use this type of membership to send different staff to events that ORA hosts. The limit of attendees to any one event will be determined by the number of memberships that your organization has purchased. It does NOT allow for 1 person to hold a membership and bring any number of people to an event under the one membership.
    The advantage for the multiuser membership is that the organization will own the memberships and can send any persons in those membership spaces rather than any one person owning the membership.
    Eg. Discovery Preschool buys 5 memberships under this category and has 70 staff. Discovery can send up to 5 staff to an event and pay the registration for 5 people (or send 5 to a free event). The next event, Discovery can send 5 different staff.
    • You may purchase any amount of memberships.
    • Memberships will be all under one email address.
  • One Year Membership with Donation to ORA
    The optional donation helps to offset the cost of the organization and it contributes to events, guest speakers, and other initiatives.
