Prototype Services provide leadership throughout the state in order to demonstrate the pedagogical approaches based on the Reggio Emilia education principles.

In February 2016, a range of 18 early childhood services, preschools and schools from across government, Catholic Education and Independent Education systems along with cultural institutions were invited to become prototypes. Prototypes are services that are committed to researching the Reggio Emilia education principles within the South Australian context.

The services agreed to participate in ongoing research led by their organisation, engage with other services identified as prototypes to develop a strong learning community, report quarterly to the Governance Group and share their research across the state. In 2018, the Prototype Services include:

  • Alberton Primary School
  • Galilee Catholic School
  • Halifax Street Children’s Centre and Preschool
  • Madge Sexton Kindergarten
  • Netley Kindergarten
  • Pedagogy & Architecture Group
  • Pennington Children’s Centre
  • St Anthony’s School
  • St Joseph’s Memorial School
  • St Peter’s College
  • St Peter’s Girls’ School Early Learning Centre
  • Faith Lutheran College
  • The Art Gallery for South Australia
  • The South Australian Museum
  • The State Library of South Australia
  • Women’s and Children’s Hospital Neo-Natal Unit
