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. For any additional questions about the Magda Gerber's RIE Approach, please call Lisa at: 305-790-7597 Lisa@riemiami.com

Getting ready for our last RIE toddler class. Feeling so many mixed emotions. Some families have been in class since their child was 3 months old. Many are here with their 2nd child.

What if the opposite was true, that keeping your young child in a sterile environment might not be the most supportive thing you can do to support long term immune health.

"Studies have shown that priming or seeding of the microbiome in the child is absolutely critical. While you don't want to go out and expose your child to aggressive infections, you don't want to create such a sterile environment that their immune system doesn't develop normally; it puts them at risk of developing immune disease."

"And what we've learned, Dr. Gilbert said, is that early life exposure to microbes can shape not only the immune system, affecting a child's likelihood of developing autoimmune conditions like eczema and asthma, but also the endocrine system, and even the child's neurodevelopment."

Dr. Allan Schore Neuroscientist, psychologist & educator is keynote speaker at the RIE Conference in LA. I'm crossing the country to learn from Dr. Schore how experiences of mutual love in infancy lays the groundwork for all later development.

(This photo was taken the last day of our toddler class. Our class was so close. We were together for 2 years. Very hard to say goodby to parents and children.)
