This paper discusses four key principles of the Reggio Emilia approach. The first concerns the multiple possibilities children possess for forms of communication. The second concerns the connections between different languages (disciplines) that are the basis for learning and understanding. The third focuses on creativity as process rather than product. The fourth explores the ways individual and group knowledge processes are developed for children, teachers and parents through research based aesthetic activity.
