Perhaps, as they have, you will find yourself looking beneath the surface of your everyday and begin (or continue in) asking questions that lead you towards new and optimistic ways of being with children and living out your teaching with a new measure of dignity and joy.
This book has great potential to contribute to and extend the conversations around the inspirations from the educational project of Reggio Emilia.The context of the early years of school offers rich possibilities for dialogue amongst those teachers who might have considered themselves to be outside the ‘Reggio space’. This is a welcome contribution, and one that will no doubt be relevant to contexts outside the Australian one.
