Welcome to the

New Jersey Educators Exploring
the Practices of Reggio Emilia, Inc.

New Jersey Educators Exploring the Practices of Reggio Emilia (NJEEPRE) is an organization of early childhood professionals who are inspired by the philosophy and practices of the municipal Preschools and Infant-Toddler Centers in the City of Reggio Emilia, Italy. This philosophy and its practices have come to be known as the Reggio Emilia approach.

As you explore with us we anticipate that you will be encouraged to reflect upon your own work with children and families and consider the possibilities in your own educational setting for new perspectives offered by the Reggio Emilia approach.

We hope that you become informed by the continued work of NJEEPRE and inspired by the theories, reflective practice, research and experiences shared on this site.
