This paper presents parts of some research I carried out between 1999 and 2002, arising from my long-standing interests in early childhood education practices in Reggio Emilia (Italy) and Matthew Lipman's Philosophy for Children (P4C) (USA). The research is based on my own integral concepts, vision and ideas, prompted my studies of pre-schools in Reggio Emilia since 1985 - I took courses in both the philosophy and methods, and spent six months there in 2002 - and my reading about P4C since 1996 - for three months in autumn 2001 I was at the Institute for the Advancement for Philosophy for Children (IACP) in Montclair, New Jersey, where Professor Lipman is the Director.
