Environment as the Third Teacher: In Reggio Emilia based schools, the environment is considered the third teacher. Instead of primary colors, cartoon characters and simple shapes, Reggio Emilia schools have beautiful photographs, artworks, live plants, flowers, and natural lighting. Supplies are organized and easily reachable for students to encourage creativity.

"A school needs to be a place for all children, not based on the idea that they are all the same, but that they are all different." -Loris Malaguzzi (founder of the first Reggio Emilia School) - sand on light table
