In my research I stumbled on your fabulous discussion about this educational philosophy. I am trying to come up with a list of schools in Illinois--close to Chicago that have implemented this approach (our public schools are just adopting the layout of the classrooms which I think is not reflective of the real strength of this approach to early childhood education so I want to visit a number of different schools).

Many thanks in advance for your comments.

I don't live in the area right now, but I think the Compass school somewhere in the Naperville area, the Chicago Commons school and the Winnetka public schools all do Reggio.
