Feedback
"What I did like about The Learning Caravan? I met with other teachers who worked in Reggio-inspired ways, learnt from what they had accomplished and had the opportunity to reflect with them about the work with children.   We were all inspired and got lots of ideas to new projects to do with the kids.  For instance, last week we built an outdoor kitchen in the kindergarten.  I had also seen that some of the staff reflecting more about how they can work more Reggio principles into their daily work. We learnt how important it is that adults working with the children think about the children's interests.  So I think that our trip to Stockholm and meeting all of you paid off well." - Karen Elise Fjelde
