Western Australia Network Groups

Perth Reggio Network

Inspired and challenged by the educational project of Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Perth Reggio Network meets throughout the year for dialogue about ways to promote a strong and positive view of children, and to advocate for children’s rights as citizens of our city.

The Perth Reggio Network aims to be a supportive forum for furthering understanding of the educational project of Reggio Emilia, in the light of the Western Australian context.


CONVENORS: Suzanne Bushby, Kristy McFarlane and Katie Pitchford
