New Online Parent-Infant Guidance™ Classes

RIE® Certified Parent-Infant Guidance classes encourage babies to be attentive, active, exploring and aware of self and others. Designed to encourage children to become authentic and responsible from an early age, Parent-Infant Guidance classes help parents to be confident in their supportive role towards this great discovery.

Facilitated by a RIE Associate, small groups of parents of children (aged 2 to 24 months) come together for weekly 60-minute online classes.  In relaxing, supportive online discussions the Facilitator encourages parents to take pleasure in the movement, play and interactions of their children while offering parenting and developmental resources as guidance in applying Magda Gerber’s Educaring Approach.

RIE® classes are also available in cities across the US, Canada, China, Israel & New Zealand.

31st Annual RIE® Conference Postponement

It is with great regret that we announce the postponing of the RIE® 31st Annual Infant and Toddler conference due to the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak.  We are working hard to find a date to reschedule the conference as we are very excited about our keynote speaker, Dr. Judyth Weaver, and all the wonderful workshops.
We regret having to make this decision, but we are following the California state guidance on convenings and meetings and out of respect for our speakers, presenters and attendees and their families, we believe this is the correct course of action.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through these difficult times.

RIE’s Founder

 

Magda Gerber

Magda Gerber founded RIE® in 1978

“the infant Magda showed us is so much more; she showed us that a baby is a miracle, a whole person, who, with our deeply attentive care, unfolds into a wonder, unique in the world. She taught us to wait, to watch without preconception, to observe with genuine curiosity, to see what the baby was trying to tell us. She gave us new eyes through which to see, not the infant we have in mind, but the actual infant before us, and to respond quietly, gently, slowly to its cues and initiations, and to respond not only to its needs but its competencies as well.” — RuthAnne Hammond, M.A., and Deborah Greenwald, M.A., RIE® Associates
