The work of the Atelier is based on the Reggio Emilia approach. One of the founders of this methodology was the psychologist and teacher Loris Malaguzzi. After World War II, he took the ideas of the people living in the Italian city of Reggio Emilia and shaped them into a new educational philosophy that later spread around the world.
The Reggio Emilia approach is based on the belief that every child is endowed with abilities and creative potential — adults just need to abandon strict rules and regulations and create conditions for self-expression and cognition. This is exactly what we do in the Atelier, where children and adults study together, communicate and create wonderful worlds.
