The Reggio approach is completely irrelevant in this culture...at least in mine.

It is beautiful inspiration, to be sure.

Firstly, collaboration is not going to happen in my context because, for now, I work alone. You need a strong staff of passionate educators as well as a cook and preferably a resident artist.

Also, something I've considered is that early education is valued by the entire community there. Here it is barely noticed or valued at all. There it is built into the school system, here it is open market.

I have learned a ton and taken a ton of inspiration from many types of preschools. Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio inspired, traditional, progressive, play based, etc etc.
