A recent BJE program featured educators who participated in a BJE continuing education experience in the town of Reggio Emilia, Italy. They led a panel discussion about their application of the cutting edge methodology they learned through this BJE initiative in their Jewish preschools in Los Angeles. After the discussion, attendees toured Adat Ari El Rose Engel Early Childhood Center, a BJE-affiliated school transformed after its director was introduced to the Reggio Emilia approach.
Beryl Strauss, Director of Adat Ari El Rose Engel Early Childhood Center, stated: "BJE continues to be at the forefront of Jewish early childhood education by encouraging our schools to expand their knowledge of the Reggio Emilia curriculum philosophy."
