Resources and inspiration developed to support your work with the youngest learners in Early Childhood classrooms. Based on constructivist approaches, such as Reggio Emilia, these materials emphasize self-directed, experiential methods in early learning. These titles focus on children’s creativity and emphasize the importance of touching, moving, listening, and observing in Early Childhood education. As children react with materials, their classmates, and the adults in their world they build important skills for success in older grades.
