RIE Bred

RIE (Resources Infant Educarers) class is a 1.5 hr. play group for babies and observation and discussion group for parents where together we spend time observing your baby at play, his/her relationship to their environment and interactions with other infants . Our beautiful and comfortable infant friendly is low tech space is based on simplicity. We gather casually on the floor, around simply crafted objects and "toys." Through Lisa, the RIE educarer, you will be guided to spend the hour and a half session simply observing, allowing yourself to let-go , relax, enjoy and permit for gentle guidance. You'll be surprised and encouraged by the ability to simply observe your child in quiet. Babies and toddler groups socialize, you'll learn subtle cues to better understand your baby's needs, practice daily activities like diapering, feeding and bathing with tenderness and attention, in a supportive atmosphere to have any questions answered. You'll slow down in order to gain knowledge through observation, creating a safe space for you and your baby. Practice letting your baby develop at his/her own pace, free play, and much more.

It's that time of the year. Great suggestions for gift giving. Give experiences.

What do we really want when we offer gifts to our kids? I’m guessing excitement, happiness, hopefully some lasting joy. It’s disheartening to give a highly anticipated toy or the newest gadget only to see it ignored a day or a week later. The antidote? Fewer presents of better quality, as well as an emphasis on experiences. According to science, these are the gifts that result in real pleasure.

Products like car seats, walkers, jumpers and floor seats can lead to an issue referred to as Container Baby Syndrome due to the inability to activate important muscles. Read why babies should have time outside of these devices.
