Reggio Emilia values “the potential of all children to think, learn, and construct knowledge.” Like Montessori Reggio Emilia is a progressive, child-centered approach to education. The idea is that the child must be free to discover and learn for himself. Reggio Emilia does not go any further than the early childhood years. It focuses on toddlers and preschool children.
“The Montessori school environment is arranged according to the subject area — cooking, cleaning, gardening, art, caring for animals, library corner, etc. — children are always free to move around the room instead of staying at desks. There is no limit to how long a child can work on something she has chosen.” – The International Montessori Index

Eighty-eight percent of children who never graduate from high school were poorly performing third-grade readers, and high school dropouts earn less than half of college graduates.
