New Mexico Reggio Emilia Exchange (NMREX), a statewide initiative
What is Reggio Emilia? A City in Northern Italy that has developed an approach to early learning that sees all children, families and educators as strong, capable and powerful.
Who are we? We are a group of New Mexico educators and families who are inspired by the principles and practices of the Reggio Emilia approach and who are determined to create conditions so that all children have access to excellent early childhood learning experiences.
The New Mexico Reggio Emilia Exchange (NMREX) is a learning collaborative that promotes the rights and inherent abilities of ALL children, families, educators, and community members through a commitment to innovative educational approaches.
The mission of NMREX is to be guided and inspired by the principles and philosophy of the Reggio Emilia Approach. We are committed to an ongoing exchange that honors and respects all children and their approaches to learning. We value and support the expertise of early childhood educators.
Our learning collaborative exists to:
nurture, promote, support, and make connections among our members.
inspire and mobilize citizens to advocate for and defend the rights of all children throughout New Mexico.
promote the belief that each child is a whole child, valued for their uniqueness in an inclusive community.
be an influential voice by making learning visible in our New Mexico communities.
be a catalyst for innovative education and research that is informed by culture, wonder, and curiosity.
promote citizenship and democracy in our educational practices by actively constructing relations, knowledge, feelings, and identities.
honor the many languages of children, families, educators, and community members.
“Education is an opportunity for the growth and emancipation of the individual and collective; it is a resource for gaining knowledge and for learning to live together; it is a meeting place where freedom, democracy, and solidarity are practiced and where the value of peace is promoted.”
