Nothing without joy! Niente Senza Gioia!

Nothing without joy! Niente Senza Gioia!

Loris Malaguzzi, one of the founders of the pre-primary schools of Reggio Emilia exclaimed this simple yet powerful statement.
This photo was taken on the last day of school at SWS and the first day of summer.
This is what summer feels like and this is what joy looks like.
How can we as teachers value joy in our school?
How can we, as teachers provoke and create an environment where we can say, daily, “This is what leaning, teaching, creating, and discovery feels like and this is what joy looks like!”
