Yet another approach and educational philosophy was propounded through the Reggio Emilia Approach that concentrated mainly on preschool as well as primary education. In this approach, the accent is more on experiential learning that is self directed amidst an environment that is relationship driven.
The curriculum is a self guided one that leads the children on a path of exploration and discovery. The principles of respect and responsibility for the community are the cornerstones of the program where the teacher assumes the role of a co-learner and collaborator. The child therefore does not feel he or she is being instructed or told to do something.
The learning process becomes a collaborative one following the principles as under:
• Children retain control over how the learning progresses
• Children should be able to learn by observing, moving, listening and touching
• Children should share relationships with others in the class and also share material things for joint exploration
• Children should have the freedom to express themselves in any which way they can.
