RISONARE Osaka’s hands-on philosophy is rooted in the Reggio Emilia Approach, one of the most advanced early childhood education programs, which goes far beyond resort pools and kids club entertainment amenities. Hoshino worked with Machino Research Institute, the only Japanese organization in the Reggio Emilia network, to integrate this philosophy into guest experiences.

 

Children can also participate in projects to deepen their creative expression through dialogue with atelieristas. Themes of the projects can be anything spatial, structural or visual. There are also plenty of other experiences available where kids can either participate by themselves or in large groups.
