2018 Study Tours | Sweden | Australia

Registration for study tours in 2018 is now open.

The Learning Caravan has been organizing international study tours since 2011. Our study tours were well attended by educators from Taiwan, Greece, Norway, USA, UK, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.

These study groups are professional learning circles for early childhood educators motivated to gain deeper understanding of the emergent curriculum and the Reggio Emilia approach, engage in valuable discussions with global early childhood colleagues and generate fresh ideas that will transform their teaching practice. Please drop us an email if you have any questions regarding the study tours.

Mode of transport for previous study groups had been via public transport - tram, train or bus. Participants need to purchase a local travel card for group travel to the host centres.

The choice of transport mode is dependent on the travel route to the host centres. Some walking is required. Participants should have comfortable footwear for walking. Alternatively you may choose to meet us at the host centres. Participants wishing to hire private transport are free to do so at their own cost.
