Educators are constantly searching for more effective ways to teach children. This thesis describes one approach to educating, the Reggio Emilia Approach. The history and philosophy of this approach, which caters to children from birth to age six, is explored. Links to systems of education within the United States are also made. Particularly important is the idea that Reggio Emilia serves as a model for the Developmentally Appropriate Practices suggested by the National Association for Young Children.
