Member Initiatives

NAREA provides the opportunity for professional development initiatives organized by NAREA members in North America to be posted on the Member Initiatives page of our website. If interested, we ask that someone at your organization or school obtain a current NAREA membership, and offer a discount to current NAREA members for that particular event. In return, NAREA will post your initiative on our website with the information provided from the host such as title, date, location, cost, a registration link, and a photo or logo associated with the event. Upon request, NAREA materials will be made available to participants.

If you are interested in having your professional development listed onto our website or have further questions, please contact

New Jersey Educators Exploring the Practices of Reggio Emilia, Inc.

November 11-21, 2017

New Jersey Educators Exploring the Practices of Reggio Emilia (NJEEPRE) is an organization of early childhood professionals who are inspired by the philosophy and practices of the municipal Preschools and Infant-Toddler Centers in the City of Reggio Emilia, Italy.

As you explore with us we anticipate that you will be encouraged to reflect upon your own work with children and families and consider the possibilities in your own educational setting for new perspectives offered by the Reggio Emilia approach.

We hope that you become informed by the continued work of NJEEPRE and inspired by the theories, reflective practice, research and experiences shared by attending one of our Upcoming Events.

The NJEEPRE events are open to members and non-members alike.  Our participants are early childhood professionals including teachers, directors, administrators, college and university faculty and those working for organizations that understand the benefits of the Reggio approach to enhance and deepen their work with children.
