reggio-inspired learning environments part 1

I like to snoop.  Give me a peek into someone else's classroom and I'm one happy camper.

Preschool teachers don't often have the opportunity to visit other centres to gather inspiration so finding pictures of classrooms on blogs is the next best thing.

So if you like to snoop too, I hope that you will enjoy this 3 part series of posts showcasing inspiring images from Reggio-inspired preschools around the globe.

Stay tuned tomorrow for more Reggio-inspired learning environments.
