In recent years a learning approach employed by preschools in the city of Reggio Emilia Italy has captured the attention of educators from many countries. The Reggio approach is an elegant blend of many complementary theories about child development and learning theory. The influence of Piaget Vygotsky and Gardner are included in the Reggio approach.

At Temple Emanu-El Pre-school we use multiple forms of documentation photographs audio-tape transcripts video-tapes note-taking and the actual product of a childs work create a multi-sensory memory of an activity. Posting the documentation throughout the school encourages the children to learn from one another and to appreciate the process of creating. Children’s interpretation of experience through the visual media are displayed as a graphic presentation of the dynamics of learning.
Documentation communicates the life of the school to others visiting the school. It also provides opportunities for children to revisit the experience. It is a process that involves observation reflection collaboration interpretation analysis and is made a part of the bulletin boards along with pictures of children engaged in experiences their words as they discuss what they are doing.
