It enables analysis of the essential elements of this particular approach to early childhood teaching and the relationship it holds with quality early years practice.

This new edition has been updated with the latest developments in this approach and includes new material on the thinking and work of Loris Malaguzzi and the future for educators in Reggio Emilia and the implications for practice in the UK.
