Welcome to REAIE
The Reggio Emilia Australia Information Exchange (REAIE) is a national reference organisation for the educational project of Reggio Emilia in Australia, and an invited member of the Reggio Children International Network.
REAIE draws on the Reggio Emilia Educational Project as the ongoing catalyst for thinking, research and advocacy in Australian educational settings.
We know that children are born with amazing potential and capacities: curiosity, a drive to understand, the ability to wait, to wonder and to be amazed, the capacity to express themselves in many ways. What kind of schools and what kind of teachers do we need to support these capacities in all children?
REAIE believes that the schools in Reggio Emilia demonstrate what is possible when a society that values human potential, relationships and the power of imagination, educates its children.
