Comments from previous workshop participants
Last year was the first year that REACH conducted online workshops in China and it received excellent reviews. We interviewed several educators who participated in the online workshops last year and let’s hear from them!

“ The training really opened my mind to more teaching possibilities! As a teacher who is new in the Reggio Emilia approach, it taught me that education is also about respecting children and respecting the elegance and beauty of the world. ”

“ There are many educators from different countries in the workshop and we have a lot of opportunities to communicate, share and collaborate with them. I can feel that everyone really loves teaching and constantly tries to challenge themselves. ”

“ Professional development for educators is also an essential element of the Reggio Emilia approach. During the training, I will try to record and explore new concepts and inspirations to design my future teaching plans. Reggio Emilia training is very important to me! ”
