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.

An entire universe takes place around the kitchen sink.

Children in RIE ™ class experimenting with opening and closing the door, giving and taking. Parents observe toddlers at play with different personalities and emperaments emerging.

Pushing and pulling.

This is mine, that is yours, this is ours.

One door is harder to open then the other. You have to pull harder. Sometimes I use my whole body to pull it open.

I like to push the button on the stove, it makes a noise when I push it.

“When we remind ourselves repeatedly that challenging behavior is a little lost child’s distress call, we begin to see the ridiculousness of taking the behavior personally. We recognize the absurdity of reactions like, “How could you treat me like this after all I do for you?! Why don’t you listen ?” Perspective gives us patience, confidence, and the calm demeanor we need to be able to help.”
