It sounds like a really cool approach, I'm kind of seeing a cross between Montessori and Waldorf but without the mystical stuff that turns me off Waldorf. Can it be used in a homeschooling setting? Can anyone tell me a bit more?

You might want to read some of the posts on the Camp Creek Blog

She is reggio inspired if not hardcore reggio.


You could also check out some of the ideas at  Brightworks school which seems a bit like a cross between a sudbury/montessori school and a reggio one.

(check out how they explain their project arcs). It's a school but I can see it working in a homeschooling environment in a similar fashion.


Here's a list of reggio homeschooling blogs and other resources
