The Temple Beth Sholom Schools’ teachers got ready for the school year with a new approach: the Reggio Emilia approach. The Reggio Emilia approach is an innovative child-led method for early childhood education developed by Italian Loris Malaguzzi. The teachers learned about the importance of hands-on learning for children during a weeklong training session with specialist Doris Benter. Temple Beth Schools incorporated the teaching style in August.

“This innovative way of teaching gives children the power and independence to think for themselves,” says Preschool Director Vickie Inglese.
