Posted in Event Announcement  |  Tagged ,

Join the OGE team on Tuesday, December 15th at 10:30 am EST to learn more about the upcoming program in Italy, “Georgetown at Villa Le Balze: Educating Young Children with Disabilities.” 

Italy has promoted inclusive participatory early childhood education since Maria Montessori first developed her teaching methods for disadvantaged and disabled children in the early 20th Century. In this program, students will compare and contrast early education models across the globe, beginning with two popular Italian models, Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Other early childhood education models such as the Step-by-Step model, used throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and the Scandinavian models will be examined providing a comprehensive analysis. Through site visits, lecture, discussion, and participation in a UNESCO co-sponsored one-day symposium, students will develop a uniquely crafted, global understanding of the early education of disabled children.

Students will arrive on June 1st and depart on June 19th, 2021. 

The application deadline is February 23rd, 2021.
