In October 2016, Professor Carla Rinaldi recommended that The South Australian Collaborative Childhood Project should support up to 4 of the 18 prototypes that demonstrate high-level evidence of:
- a deep commitment to researching the principles of the Reggio Emilia education principles to develop a local approach that has the traces of the Reggio Emilia principles
- documentation that makes their research visible
- the ability to share their ongoing research beyond their service.
The following 4 prototypes were successful in their applications:
- Alberton Primary School
- Halifax Street Children’s Centre and Preschool
- Pennington Children’s Centre
- St Peter’s Collegiate Girls’ School Early Learning Centre.
Project Quattro receives support to continue their research (a grant and pedagogical leadership) and each prototype has committed to participate in ongoing research, professional learning and will document their research, share their research with others and have the ongoing support of their service/organisation.
