Boston has been selected to host The Wonder of Learning 2018  — the exhibition, conference, and professional development series highlighting best practices in early childhood education.

Organized by the Boston Area Reggio Inspired Network, Inc., in collaboration with Reggio Children, The Instituzione of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA), the six-month colloquium will take place at Wheelock College’s Boston campus along The Riverway. Related events and programming will take place at other Boston area educational institutions, centers, and schools.

From June 21 to November 15, The Wonder of Learning Boston 2018 will bring educators, researchers, policymakers, and families together for an unprecedented opportunity to improve programs and outcomes for our youngest learners. This comes at a critical time as Boston and communities across New England make new investments in early childhood education.

To ensure this investment delivers enduring benefits, we will provide educators and caregivers, regardless of zip code, equitable access to professional development so that every child’s teacher is inspired and prepared to provide the best possible environment for learning.

The Wonder of Learning—The Hundred Languages of Children exhibition, highlighting the pioneering Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education, and accompanying events and professional development series, will bring unparalleled and desperately needed teacher training to the heart of Boston.
