NAREA, together with Reggio Emilia, Reggio Children, Reggio Children – Loris Malaguzzi Foundation, and the Reggio Children International Network, is building a new future based on a strong and competent image of children, their families, and their teachers.
NAREA is formally connected to the municipal early childhood education project of Reggio Emilia, Italy, considered the most advanced system of early childhood education in the world. Through our formal relationship, we bring representatives from Reggio Emilia to North America, supporting continual exchange and dialogue.
NAREA offers participation in a larger movement and a greater cause for those who feel moral and ethical urgency on behalf of children. When you are counted as a member, you enhance the impact and credibility of our aims.
NAREA is dedicated to an elevated image of early childhood education seen as a profession committed to understanding children and education through research and innovation.
Becoming a NAREA member allows you to receive special access to a “members only” section of our website. Here you will find additional updated resources. NAREA members receive a subscription to Innovations of Early Education: The International Reggio Emilia Exchange developed in collaboration with Loris Malaguzzi and published for 27 years through an agreement with Reggio Children and the Istituzione Preschools and Infant-Toddler centers of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia.
