Blossom’s approach to learning and education is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Philosophy of Education. The Reggio Emilia Philosophy was founded in Italy in the region of Reggio Emilia by Loris Malaguzzi (educator and child psychologist). Malaguzzi worked alongside with the community to create this new educational system, it was fully established and recognized by the 1970s. This educational philosophy is not strictly taught, nor is there any official certification to obtain in their methods. The philosophy itself is meant to be organic in nature, adapted to the individual and unique needs and specificities of each community that uses it’s guiding principles to inspire teaching and learning, inside and outside of the classroom. What inspires us here in Warsaw, the nature and community around us, the backgrounds of our children and their families, and the culture in which we live, will all look very different from a Reggio inspired preschool in Canada, or Morocco.
