South Australian Network Groups
Adelaide Network Group
The Adelaide Network meets once a term to explore the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach to education. We are mindful of our South Australian context and closely reference Carla Rinaldi’s ‘Re-imagining Childhood’. Each term we meet at a South Australian site that represents one of the principles in action. We offer four workshops that people can choose to attend: Research, Reading, Starting Your Journey, and a Site Option. All are welcome!
Wednesday evenings – Week 5 of each term.
Convenor: Holly Baulderstone
