Introducing Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach
The Educaring® Approach honors infants and young children as equal members in relationships. Incorporating a deep respect and appreciation of the baby as more than a helpless object, the Educaring® Approach encourages infants and adults to trust each other, learn to problem solve, and embrace their ability for self-discovery. When allowed to unfold in their own way and in their own time, children discover and inspire the best in themselves and in others.
“RIE’s approach has profoundly changed my relationship with my son in so many beautiful ways! By treating him with respect and slowing down to his pace makes every interaction easier and fun without feeling like a burden. Through observation and paying closer attention, I have learned so much more about him and I am amazed daily by how he discovers the world.”
"This approach has enhanced our relationship with our child by giving her the freedom to express herself in a secure and respectful environment. It has given us the confidence to encourage her development at her own pace, in her own time, while minimizing interference from us. Our classes with Jill have inspired countless discussions about raising our child with intention, with thoughtfulness, and above all, with respect."
