    As a Morah for many years I can tell you that Reggio has a place in education and can be very helpful but lets not forget that our baseline is yiddishkeit. If we go all the way Reggio we risk raising very chutzpahdik kids who think they can do whatever they want with no regard for kabbolas ol, and Halacha. We need to remember that some things are not flexible and can’t be decided based on their feelings and interests.

    Any one know where this was publicized?

    Preschoolers need to feel Safe and secure in a very happy peaceful environment. A teacher is an excellent teacher if she is born with Qualities that are ingrained in her- inborn. Such as a loving heart positive disposition and plain sincere goodness with ofcourse a little Seichel for some kind of LOVING discipline. Children need love and warmth. I believe that no matter how many philosophies and how many degrees the teacher studies and toils for will not create a loving warm person a teacher/ person is BORN with!

    Not sure you know all that much about a well run Reggio clasroom.
    kids dont have free reign. They very much listen to their teachers. And a well run classroom doesnt run the risk of chutzpah.

    And yes a good teacher always wants to learn more so she can be an even better teacher. She looks at other classrooms and ideas for inspiration.
    children need love and warmth and a program that helps them develop all sorts of skills like creativity, inquiry, grit and so much more.

    Such a special project and such an opportunity for preschool staff. May more Chabad schools in CH put such emphasis on good quality training for their staff.

    We need more loving teachers in our schools. Teachers who will understand our children who are not the cookie cutter kids. All of this is lovely and important but security and Love for each child means a lot more.

    Glad to see taking advantage of strides in education.

    This is a very meaningful initiative. I would like to add that more then six years ago a lubawitch Pre school, under the direction of Mrs Rivkie Spalter( Chabad of Mequon Wisconsin) changed it’s educational methods and created a learning environment based on the Reggion philosophy. Mrs Spalter has become an expert in the field, attending conferences in Italy and working with the best possible mentors I visited the school , almost accidentally ,one year, unaware of the specific educational methods. I was so inspired and impressed. She has managed to integrate the Reggio approach with our own Torah and… Read more »

    Job well done! As for those educators with legitimate concerns about new(er) approaches to teaching: we frum teachers have become astute practitioners of “Borer,” we weed out the useful and discard / disregard the rest. Thankfully, there is a tremendous amount that is indeed useful, and I’m glad our mechanchos are being given the opportunity to explore it in no less a prestigious institution than Bank Street. Thanks, Mrs. K. BTW, I agree with comment #2, this opportunity wasn’t well publicized. Whether the number of attendees at these seminars is being deliberately limited isn’t information we’re privy to, but if… Read more »
