Early Childhood Professionals Prepare for Seminar in Italy

Early Childhood ProfessionalsOn October 19th, a cohort of 12 Jewish early childhood professionals, led by Carolyn Linder, Federation’s Director of Early Childhood Education met to discuss their journey for a 10-day seminar in Italy, exploring the Reggio Emilia Approach through a Jewish Perspective. This unique experience will focus on the professional growth of the participants as they look at multiple ways of deepening their understanding of the pedagogy of the Reggio Approach and connecting it to the values and content of their own local Jewish Early Childhood programs.

The childhood professionals have partnered with The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington on the seminar which has a total of 63 Jewish early childhood educators representing Boston, Chicago, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pittsburgh and Israel.

Local participation in the seminar was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Dr. Solomon and Sarah Goldberg Memorial Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.
