The International Center for the Defense and Promotion of the Rights and Potentials of all Children is a mixed public-private company established in 1994 on the initiative of Loris Malaguzzi and the commitment of a group of local citizens, with the aim to manage the educational and cultural initiatives that had been taking place for many years between the municipal early childhood institutions of Reggio Emilia and a large number of educator and researchers from around the world.

Reggio Children organizes professional study tours for participants from around the world. Reggio Children also publishes a number of resources (books, DVDs) based on the Reggio Emilia Approach.
