We are looking for a pre-school for our daughter and are very much interested in a school that is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. We have found the Advent school in Boston but wouldn't work well for us. The NAREA website was not much of a help.


Could someone point us to schools in the west/north of boston that are Reggio Emilia inspired?


Thank you in advance.

Hi Ravi,

Arlington Heights Nursery School in Arlington, MA is inspired by Reggio. I am a former employee.  Although Reggio is difficult to replicate, they definitely base their curriculum on a Reggio approach--and they have some of the best teachers around! 

Feel free to tell them  Beth Santoro sent you!

Good luck on your search!

Peabody Terrace Children's Center in Cambridge, MA is a Reggio Emilia school for infants up to pre-school (different classrooms for each age group).  Wonderful community of people!  Not sure if the other child care centers affiliated with Harvard are also RE-inspired, but they may also be worth looking into.
