The Wonder of Learning includes a 7000 sq. ft. multimedia traveling exhibition, developed by Reggio Children and coordinated by the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA), that visually presents the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. Using images and text, interactive multimedia, handmade artifacts, and publications, the exhibition explores how teachers and students work together to construct knowledge around compelling projects.

Through the exhibition, educators encounter some of the most effective approaches to teaching and learning in the world, with ideas they can immediately apply to their own practice.

Since its debut in 2008, more than 120,000 people have encountered The Wonder of Learning and experienced a variety of professional development initiatives aimed at advancing knowledge and action for early childhood education.
