Hundred languages of children
of playing, of speaking. A hundred always a hundred ways of listening of marveling, of loving a hundred joys for singing and understanding a hundred worlds to discover
a hundred worlds to invent a hundred worlds
to dream. The child hasa hundred languages
(and a hundred hundred hundred more) but they steal ninety-nine. The school and the culture separate the head from the body.

only at Easter and at Christmas They tell the child: to discover the world already there
and of the hundred they steal ninety-nine.
They tell the child: that work and play
reality and fantasy science and imagination
sky and earth reason and dream are things
that do not belong together. And thus they tell the child that the hundred is not there. The child says: No way. The hundred is there.

Reflecting on this philosophy today in Greece, we embrace the basic features of the innovative pedagogy of Reggio Emilia, combined with influences from the Forestry Schools (Scandinavian countries) as well as adopting elements of Maria Montessori’s theory and methodology.

Education that will prepare the new humanity has a single purpose: to lead both the individual and humankind to a higher stage of development.
