Reggio Inspired Emergent Curriculum & Constructivist Practices in Early Childhood Education


This page is dedicated to teachers who are interested in sharing their Reggio inspired environments with other educators. The images with accompanying text have been submitted to this site by educators from the field.

Information on the teachers and ways to contact them are provided when possible. Some of the documentation is older so the teachers and their contact information has changed, though we still share their environment stories as they are pertinent today.

InnovativECE thanks all the teachers who share the documentation of their environments on this site.
