For those that use the Reggio Emilia, Sudbury, Democratic, or other style of education can you explain to me what each one means?  Or, is there a good website that would give a brief description of each?  Very interested in learning the different styles of learning/education.  Also, how young do you start? Thanks!

Here is a good brief rundown on RE.

 

I don't know much about the others. Our family follows a blend of Waldorf principles though a Reggio approach. I have an in-home daycare / preschool.

Hi there! Sudbury, briefly, is self-directed learning in a working democracy. Children from 4-18 are responsible for their education in our schools; little kids play, bigger kids pursue more specific interests. Students & staff work together to run the school. I am a founder of a Sudbury school in Salt lake City, we are finishing up our 8th year. All three of my boys go to school there. the best resource is www.sudval.org.

 

Good luck in your search!

I am a teacher at a public charter school that uses expedition learning. It is my second year teaching their and my daughters is in Kindergarten. The school is a K-8 school that really is quite amazing. I would highly recommend a school that is following the expedition learning model. http://elschools.org/
