The Nest Nursery School is pleased to be a part of a very special educational project called Project Infinity which is an initiative of a local non-profit organization called Inspired Practices in Early Education. Project Infinity supports connections between schools in Georgia and South Carolina that are interested in knowing more about the infant/toddler centers and preschools or Reggio Emilia, Italy. Through participation in the project, schools engage in ongoing dialogue and reflection about their own contexts and experiences with the goal of supporting the thinking and action of educators.
The Nest is one of seven schools in the southern United States which participates in Project Infinity and the only school to begin in the project from the school’s inception. Dr. Margie Cooper, the President and founder of Inspired Practices, has dedicated her professional life to expanding interest in and conversation about the experiences of Reggio Emilia. Margie is a wonderful resource for our program and The Nest’s participation in Project Infinity is an important strategy in creating the best possible school for young children.
