RIE for Childcare

The Educaring® approach can help you achieve excellence in your group or family childcare program.

The beauty of the Educaring approach is that it isn’t about spending on more stuff or curricula. You can provide excellent care by reviewing what babies need and how caregivers spend their time.

What’s more, implementing the Educaring approach can mean staff who are less exhausted and more satisfied with their work.

Consultations start with a discussion of your goals as a childcare center. We then observe — children, the environment, staffing, procedures, assessments, parent communication — whatever relates to your goals.  We work together to implement strategies to meet your goals, ever mindful of your constraints.

To bring RIE Educaring® concepts to your childcare center or support your staff, please contact me to discuss your needs and interests.

Infancy is a vulnerable stage of development, therefore, it’s not enough that babies receive good care, the care must be excellent. — Magda Gerber
