    When monitoring the achievements in preschool education around the world, it is impossible to overlook a contemporary concept, whose institution extends well in the year of 1963 and is today practiced in 22 kindergartens in Reggio Emilia (northern Italy). The concept became interesting after the year of 1983, when children from Reggio Emilia kindergartens introduced their products (pictures, drawings, statuettes, models, photographs, projects shown on panels…) on exhibition in Stockholm. They challenged the attention of professional, cultural and lay public because of exceptional display of children’s creativity and achievements. Concept Reggio Emilia derives from many different theories and leans mostly on involvement in cultural environment, diversity of children, development and use of all senses in cognitive development and quality interaction and communication. In this paper authors are focusing on three specific elements of Reggio Emilia concept (participation, cooperation with local community and project work) and their implementation in Slovene curriculum for preschool education.
