AnchorDocumentation Centre


The Documentation Centre at the REAIE Office in Melbourne has been designed to enable members to enjoy browsing through a variety of documentation, including projects, daily journals and of course a selection of resource books.

We hope it will be a place where REAIE Members can enjoy focused discussion and dialogue, resulting in inspiration and transformation of practice. During the times that the Documentation centre is open, a member of the REAIE committee as well as someone from our newly formed, Friends of REAIE, will be available to facilitate further discussion and collaboration.

It will also be possible for members to book a separate time to visit the Documentation centre particularly if there is a group of people wishing to come together such as a Network Group, Centre or School.  These sessions by appointment must be booked through the REAIE office and dates can be negotiated according to the availability of an REAIE facilitator.

Whilst this initiative is now open to the members, we do consider it to be a work in progress and will enjoy watching it grow and change over time. We would be delighted if you have a project or something of interest which you have documented which could be added to the collection. Wherever possible, it would be preferable, to have a copy that we could keep, rather than it being on loan.

When visiting the Documentation centre you will notice some panels that reflect the history of REAIE. This is the beginning of a Research Project tracing the early beginnings of the organisation and what and how it has evolved. We invite you to be part of this project by contributing memorabilia, photographs and reflections. It has been 20 years since Jan Millikan first explored the Pedagogical Approach of Reggio Emilia with Australian educators and we are very keen to develop an accurate history to honour this important collaboration.
