Speaking & Workshops

Schedule a workshop to help your staff or parent group learn about providing quality care to infants and toddlers.


Childcare Staff:

Continuing education for childcare providers is essential. It not only helps increase the quality of care infants and toddlers in childcare receive, it can increase staff satisfaction. RIE is recognized as helping childcare staff feel greater connection with the children in their care, more confidence that they are giving babies a healthy start, while also making the work less stressful and more rewarding.

Parent Groups:

Parenting is the best job in the world. It also demands a lot from parents, including that they grow alongside their child. In a world that tells parents they need to do everything and be everything, learning about RIE can be liberating. RIE helps parents focus on what is essential.

If infants are ready to do something, they will do it. In fact, when they are ready, they have to do it. — Magda Gerber
