The institute has been involved in early childhood education since its inception. Working with practitioners and professionals in

Washington provides workshops for preschool and infant-toddler teachers to share experience in practices of the Reggio Emilia

Way, holds conferences for domestic and international participants interested in learning and exchange of the Reggio

Emilia Way experience, and offer certificate programs for teachers and preschool/infant-toddler centers. Over the years, Reggio

Washington has been disseminating the Reggio Emilia Way in collaboration with partners in certified preschools and todler

centers, one of which being the Little CoolStars preschool chain.

The Institute also supports the Center for Asian Politics and Policy (CAPP) and the Asian Politics and History Association

(APHA), which publishes an academic journal, Journal of Asian Politics and History (JAPH). In support of APHA's annual
