At the heart of the Reggio Emilia approach to learning is a special kind of teacher known as an Atelierista. An Atelierista is a teacher with an arts background who works closely with the children in the atelier (art space) focusing on producing art through different mediums as they recognise that children have many languages of expression and thousands of ideas. In this way, the expressive and poetic languages become part of the process by which knowledge is built. Our Atelierista uses painting, drawing, building, singing and many other languages to allow children to explore and develop at their own pace. One of the unique attributes of an Atelierista is that they learn alongside the children in their care and whilst reflecting with the children on their learning outcomes, our Atelieristas also take time regularly to reflect on what they have learned about themselves and their own teaching.
