Bambini: The Italian Approach to Infant/toddler Care
Lella Gandini, Carolyn P. Edwards
Teachers College Press, Jan 1, 2001 - Education - 237 pages
This volume is a timely contribution to the burgeoning dialogue on the Reggio Emilia approach, and features the work of prominent scholars, policy-makers, researchers, administrators, and practicing teachers who have created and directed the infant-toddler care systems in four cities in Italy. Joined by American educators and researchers (including Ron Lally, Rebecca New, and Jeanne Goldhaber), their work builds upon and extends inclusionary and family-centered philosophies. It combines missions of care and education, and produces innovations in space and environments.
This collection is filled with dozens of examples of experiences with dynamic, open systems of organization that support emotional and cognitive development of infants and toddlers, and respect the delicate relationship between parents and their young. Also included are many photos, some in colour.
