Embassy Education of Viet Nam and Reggio Children of Italy have opened the Little Em's preschool in District 3 in HCM City.

Established under a decision of the People's Committee of District 3 on August 22, Little Em's marks an important turning point in the official educational and training co-operation between the two sides.

Through an agreement between the two organisations, Embassy Education is recognised as a partner in developing the brand and implementing the Reggio Emilia Approach and educational philosophy implementation in Viet Nam.

Launched in 1940, the Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative educational method founded and developed by the Italian psychologist Loris Malaguzzi (1920-1994). “Our mission is to arouse the creativity of young children so that they conquer the highest mountain possible with their own feet.”

Little Em's Preschool will be the exemplary model for the Reggio Emilia Approach so that teachers, parents and educational institutions can visit, learn about and experience the Reggio Emilia Approach. They will be able to understand how to contextualise it for the Vietnamese culture and current education system.

Little Em’s is recognised as the very first Reggio Emilia Approach preschool to implement Viet Nam's early childhood education curriculum for children aged from two to six.

The curriculum at Little Em's not only prepares children with the skills they need for the future, but also combines a diverse and wide range of subjects integrated with the arts to give them holistic personality formation and competence development. — VNS
