Connecting the Pockets

  • Are you one of the many UK early childhood settings endeavouring to develop reflective learning?

  • Are you in some way influenced by the work of Sightlines Initiative/ Reggio Emilia?

We are trying to join the dots: but very often we don’t even know where the ‘dots’ are, so would you like to join our survey?

  • We know that many individual settings are working hard to create principled practice, and we believe connection, recognition, and visibility could help you directly. Even in easy times, change is hard, and the times aren’t easy!
  • Others – parents, young educators, settings who are beginning to open up to new possibilities – ask us “who is out there? Where can my children go? Is there a good place in which I could teach? Whom could I visit in my professional learning journey?”

It was 1997 when we held the first exhibit of the Hundred Languages of Children from Reggio Emilia, and commenced our action-research work.  Since then, hundreds of thousands of UK educators have visited exhibitions of Reggio’s or Sightlines Initiative’s work, engaged with Sightlines’ conferences, action-research projects or CPD, or been with us on Study Weeks to Reggio Emilia.

If you are working to develop your pedagogy, and you strongly connect with the ethics and practice of the Reggio Approach, we want to include you. We think it is important to be able to show that there is a strong and continuing legacy of this inspirational connection.

Being in Dialogue

We would like to get a sense of what the encounters are meaning to you and your setting. We know that settings are going way beyond ‘sticking a quote on the wall’, and we want to hear how it is for you.

It could also be that we can make your comments appear on our map, when we make it. 


Have you or others in your setting written about, or presented narratives of your learning, or about your children’s learning in  the new contexts you’ve created?

These may be publications, paragraphs (e.g. vision statements) on websites for communities/parents, presentations to others …
