As featured in
"The Reggio teacher is unique because she offers herself to the co-construction knowledge, releasing the traditional roles of a teacher and opening doors to new possibilities.
She starts with the use of the child's own theories, promotes disequilibrium, and helps the child to think about their thinking to facilitate new learning."
Seong Bock Hong, 1998.
Importance of Play
"Play is so important to optimal child development that it has been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child."
