Children Must Have a Voice in the Shaping of Early Education

Inspired Practices amplifies the signal of nontraditional, immersive, experiential learning frameworks in early childhood education through programs, projects, and advocacies. We engage with policymakers, schools, teachers, and parents in ways that challenge traditional instructional approaches in the U.S. and work to create better, more forward-facing opportunities for educators, families, and children.

We envision a state, region and world where all children experience exceptional childhoods.

Our work is inspired by Reggio Emilia, Italy’s, approach to teaching and learning – place-based, child-valued, relational, exploratory — but moreover by the evidence that children themselves are active constructors of knowledge, and that learning from them is key to creating exceptional educational experiences with them.
