Parent-Infant Guidance Class

COVID Guidelines for in-person 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 come together to discuss development, ask questions and share insights. Classes are designed to support the way adults learn, which is through repetition over time. Learning new behaviors takes practice and the facilitator utilizes different tools such as video clips, observations and articles to encourage self-reflection and growth.


Also facilitated by a RIE Associate, our in-person classes at our Pasadena, California location are composed of small groups of children and their caregivers gather to take pleasure in the child’s unfolding and personhood. Whenever possible, infants are grouped according to their age or motor development.

Both online and in-person groups are ongoing and designed to remain together until the children are around two-years-old.
