Reggio Class at reDiscover Center in Mar Vista
There’s space in a Reggio-inspired class at the reDiscover Center in Mar Vista. The one-hour, weekly class is lead by Gianna Albano, a gifted and credentialed educator from Italy.  As a pedagogista, she has consulted with most Reggio inspired preschools on the Westside.  Every week she creates a different sensory environment for a small group of children — clay, newspapers, water, fabrics, blocks, natural materials, light boards, etc.  Classes start with a brief circle time, then parents observe their little ones engage with materials, and gather again to reflect. Throughout each class, Gianna facilitates interactions between children, as well as between parents and children, and takes photos of their projects as part of documentation. She truly respects a child’s individuality. A group of 2 and 3 year olds meet on Thursdays at 10:30am, but there are also other age groups and class times.  The cost is $105 for 4 classes with a one-time registration fee of $35 for new families. If you’re interested, please e-mail Gianna at and she can send you flyers about the program and answer your questions.
