We are excited to share that our parenting classes are certified by the RIE organization. RIE (pronounced “rye”) is the acronym for Resources for Infant Educarers®, a non-profit co-founded by Magda Gerber and pediatric neurologist Tom Forrest, M.D. in 1978. Gerber was well known for introducing the idea of respecting infants and seeing them as confident, competent individuals. The organization carries on her mission of improving the care of infants worldwide.

Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach fosters an authentic sense of self and lays a foundation for secure relationships, enduring curiosity, and lasting self-confidence to support infants to be:

  • Confident
  • Peaceful Self-initiating
  • Inner-directed
  • Focused
  • Cooperative
