Further reading Children, Spaces, Relations: Metaproject for an Environment for Young Children. Ceppi, G. and Zini, M. (eds) (1998). Reggio Children. This book describes a research project carried out in Reggio Emilia by architects, engineers, designers and educators. The research looked closely at the relationship between the pedagogy of the Reggio Approach and the architecture of the infant-toddler centre and preschool buildings. In the book the authors describe how the physical environment can be a partner in the learning process for young children.

Malaguzzi believed that all children are naturally creative and that they should have opportunities to develop their creative skills and expression. It was also his idea to have an atelier, a studio, in each centre and to include an atelierista, a person with particular creative skills, as a member of staff. When Loris Malaguzzi talked about children’s learning he used the expression ‘the hundred languages of children’. This recognises that creative children have many different ways of expressing themselves.

Managing risky freedom To be creative children have to feel confident about taking risks and trying things out. Part of this will involve them ‘taking risks’ with their ideas. This means being confident enough to ask questions and put forward ideas without being afraid that people will either laugh at them or tell them that they are wrong. You can develop this ‘climate for creativity’ through the way you build children’s self-confidence and self-respect by being an active listener and a good role model.
