(30 PDPs) Join us for a unique opportunity to visit and study the early childhood centers of the city of Pistoia, Italy and learn about Pistoia’s internationally-renowned early childhood education.

The Innovations in Education study tour, launched in 2010, has quickly become known for the variety of learning opportunities it offers its participants, as well as its intimate view of Pistoia. Participants tour school environments; learn about the schools’ history; talk with school staff and teachers about both practical and philosophic aspects of teaching and learning; see a wide variety of documentation; and share with other participants their observations, beliefs and practice. Participants also have the opportunity to experience the geography, history and culture of Pistoia, where the value of aesthetics and deeply held beliefs about the potential and rights of all children and families are so foundational.
