reggio inspired learning spaces

I'm inspired by the way Reggio inspired centres take care to create a welcoming and aesthetically pleasing environment that invites and encourages exploration and discovery.

Within the Reggio Emilia schools, great attention is given to the look and feel of the classroom.  Just feast your eyes on some of the wonderful images of Reggio Emilia inspired preschools I have found lately:

  1. wow, thanks Jenny for finding these so beautiful. Reminds me to reduce visual clutter.

  2. Love the mirror idea. I need to incorporate more mirrors in our home as well.

  3. I love the hanging fabric that is a wonderful idea.
