Reggio Emilia’s View of the Child: The Hundred Languages

In the Reggio Emilia approach children are viewed as infinitely capable and natural learners. They are curious and able to direct their own learning in fundamental ways. They also display a great deal of diversity in their talents and intellectual expression. It is the role of the teacher to provide opportunities for children to express themselves in any of “the hundred languages” they possess.
