Visiting remains one of the most powerful tools for prompting ideas, as well as giving confidence for action. It is common in the field of agriculture for transferring knowledge and ideas through model farms and tours. One excellent example is Reggio Emilia, a prosperous town in Northern Italy which, since the Second World War, has developed a creative, holistic and child-centred approach to early years’ education which acts as an inspiration to early years’ educators all over the world. Reggio Children is a mixed private-public company which co-ordinates tours and visits to early years’ centres in the area.
