What Our Teachers Say...
"La Scuola is a place that has made me grow in so many aspects of my life. Working as a teacher at La Scuola, means for me being a researcher with the children and together, discovering something new every day. It is a great learning experience. I enjoy the inquiry process, and offering to my students' new provocations in reference to the education, trying to generate different spaces that respect the integral development of the children, making the school a place where the students are always looking forward to going to. We are open-minded and believe in the one hundred languages of Malaguzzi, we value different ways of thinking and communicate through our Reggio inspiration. "
