As a Reggio-inspired school, we are often asked by fellow educators and families about where to find additional information, in order to delve deeper into the philosophy. There is a wealth of resources available, and sometimes that can be overwhelming. We are always discovering new books, blogs, and other inspired-educators to learn from; and we look forward to sharing these with you too. In the meantime, to get you started we’d like to share some of our favourites from the Richland bookshelves:
