Michigan Inspirations

We are a proud member of the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA)


In 2011 Building Blocks Preschool became a founding member and steering committee leader of Michigan Inspirations. We are a community of Reggio-inspired learners. Our teachers collaborate and train with teaching professionals from some of the most respected learning institutions in the state—Fenton World of Wonder, Okemos Nursery School, U of M Flint, Lansing Community College, and Central Michigan University among them. This collaborative united teachers, adjunct educators, and administrators to visit the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy in 2014 and gain much inside on the inspired schools here in Michigan.
