Our History

New Jersey Educators Exploring the Practices of Reggio Emilia, Inc. (NJEEPRE) is an organization which was formed in March 2003.

NJEEPRE registered as a non-profit corporation in the State of New Jersey and became a 501©(3) tax exempt organization registered with IRS as of November 2007.

NJEEPRE then became a membership organization in February 2009 in order to offer those in the early childhood community an opportunity to support and participate more fully in the achieving the goals of the organization.

Although NJEEPRE focuses on the early childhood community, the organization is open to the broader spectrum of the learning community – including directors, assistants, teachers, parents, students and teachers of teachers in higher education settings – in a variety of settings and levels.

Two of the early NJEEPRE contributors are listed below.
