  1. I love all of your wonderful ideas. Thank you so much for sharing. I have a 27 month old and am wondering how I go about setting up wonderful activities like you have done but for a younger child. Any tips or suggestions? Spots on your blog that I can look into?

    Hi, Kate! I love what you are doing with and for your children. I am a nanny in Seattle. My kiddoes are 14-months and 16-months. Is there an archive of your work with Sarah (&/or Jack) when they were young toddlers? I would love to begin to incorporate Reggio into our activities but am unsure how to start with such young charges. Previously I was working with 3-5-year-olds. Thanks! Happy new year! Christy

    1. Hi Christy,

      I think I need to create an archive for that toddler age. When both Jack and Sarah were that age they really enjoyed exploring treasure baskets filled with beautiful natural and interesting (real not toys) materials. They also really enjoyed exploring different art materials like paint and clay as well as modelling materials like playdough. I think for this age, activities which invoke a sense of wonder; what is that? how does it work? what does it do? what can I do with it? are perfect. As well as lots of activities which encourage them to explore with all their senses.

      I’ll get working on the archive but in the mean time I have a lot of inspiration on my Pinterest boards

  3. Have own nursery and took afternoon off to read your site and re read and re plan using reggio ideas. Thankyou wonderful afternoon and inspiring site. Now going for walk in wood to collect pine cones and conkers for tomorrow.

    1. Thank you so much Alison. I hope you have a wonderful afternoon in the woods 🙂 The children will love the collections you find. What plans do you have for the exploration?
