FORM Network

Friends of RIE Minnesota (FORM)

As a native of Minneapolis, I am a proud member and supporter of FORM. Magda Gerber’s Educaring® philosophy is really taking root in Minnesota, and it’s wonderful to see it in childcare centers, parent-child classes, homes, and schools. I was lucky enough to meet the FORM folks in St. Paul, MN in 2017 and have written an article for them about independent play that you can read here.

Founded in May of 2014, FORM is a growing community of parents, educators, students, and administrators who gather monthly to inspire, support and engage in topics relating to early childhood education and parenting.

FORM’s Mission: “We are an open forum for collaborative inquiry, dialogue, and advocacy influenced by Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach in Minnesota.”
