It's our new bite-sized blog, full of thought-provoking ideas. We supply the questions; the answers come from you.
The name comes from the preschools of Reggio Emilia in Italy, celebrated for their enlightened approach to early years education. They use what they call provocations to inspire exploration and discovery. The teachers present new materials; the children decide what to make of them.
We're launching the new blog with eleven posts, to give you an idea of what to expect. We'd love to know what you think of it.
You can find Provocations in the navigation, under 'Knowledge', or you can simply follow this link.
