RIE® Foundations: Theory & Observation™ Course

RIE® Foundations: Theory & Observation™ Course

This is a 60-hour professional development course designed to enhance the skills and competencies of parents and professionals who work in the field of infant care, teach in a college environment, work with parents, or train students in infant care and development. Each student is mentored according to his or her goals. Upon successful completion of all training requirements, participants will receive a letter of completion or letter of attendance. One class (or 3 hours) is allowed as an excused absence.

While the Foundations course is open to anyone with interest, the practicum and internship portions of the training are reserved for people who particularly wish to become RIE® Associates based on an open and reflective nomination process.

In the RIE® Foundations: Theory & Observation™ professional development program, participants learn to implement Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach through lectures, reflections, videos, discussions, observations and readings.

This course provides an overview of the following:

  • gross motor
  • fine motor
  • social-emotional development of the infant
  • designing the environment
  • the art of observation
  • parents’ and infants’ needs, expectations, and learning appropriate “curriculum” for infants and toddlers
