Kindergartens based on the Reggio Children approach are to be set up in Vietnam. The method, conceived in Italy by Loris Malaguzzi in the immediate post-war period, considers the child as an individual and bearer of rights who learns and grows in relationship with others producing knowledge and communicating it to the outside world through a variety of verbal languages and through body language.
The introduction of this method in Vietnamese schools has been made possible thanks to an agreement between the Reggio Emilia and Global Embassy association and the foundation that belongs to the artist, philanthropist and educator Bui Vu Thanh. The Consul General of Italy in Ho Chi Minh, Dante Brandi, delivered an opening address at the ceremony also on behalf of the Ambassador to Vietnam, Antonio Alessandro, pointing out that the agreement takes the Italian-Vietnamese bilateral relations in the educational sector to a higher level of maturity. This increases the presence in the world of schools based on the Reggio Children method which already ranges from San Francisco to Beijing and, more recently, to Hong Kong.
