Vision for Learning

Vision for Learning

Within its ‘Vision for Learning’, St Joseph's Memorial School embraces the values and practices that the teachers in Reggio Emilia have developed over the past 40 years. Reggio Emilia is a city in northern Italy, internationally renowned for its Infant-Toddler Centres and Preschools.

Principles of this include;

  • Children are recognised as having rich potential.
  • Children are listened to and respected.
  • Children's work is authentic and meaningful to them.
  • Children's deeper level thinking is encouraged and celebrated.
  • Children and teachers are both learners.
  • Children inspire and respect each other.
  • Children use many forms of expression to communicate their ideas.
  • Children, parents and teachers form our community of learners.
