Online groups meet weekly for an hour for parents only. Encouraging babies to be attentive, active, exploring and aware of self and others is the goal. The process enables growth of parents' confidence as they too build skills through observation. My Certified™ class can help parents for the first two years to be more confident in their supportive role towards this greatest discovery, ridding themselves of unrealistic expectations of perfection. RIE liberates!

"I wish to say thank you for your incredibly valuable work. You have taken such great care, time and thought to work through this intensive course. I am so very grateful for the dialogue and the openness of heart and mind to share your insights. I admire your ambition to continue learning and growing too. I have not only taken away insights on how to work with babies, toddlers and families but also how to facilitate a course in meaningful ways. The pace of the training was excellent and the stories and videos brought the principles of RIE to life. I see the challenges in attempting to meet everyone’s needs; parents and educators and nannies, but, it gave such a nice wide perspective for me. The time to talk without a looming Powerpoint is a rarity in training also so thank you for this."

Intro to Educaring®

MAY 23 & 25, 2022

3-hour online course

7:30 to 9:00 PM PacTime

 

"A holidtic approach to being and caring for people."

     Did the course content meet your expectations?
Yes, Liz, the instructor herself demonstrated calmness, elegance, while delivering Madga's words and her experiences, she was also very patient and encouraging while listening what we (students online) were trying to express. The course itself was informative and inspiring, made me have a strong feeling that I truly want to find out more from the RIE Foundation Course or further more.

     Did you learn something new?

Yes,"The world is changing, Infants/young children are not.""Parents/adults should spend good quality of time, observing the children to understand, to see what they really need instead of we as an adults to tell them what we want hem to be.”
